Dr. Rapaport is not only a great mentor and an excellent teacher but also a "first-class" human being. His greatest strength was to make novel and important discoveries in blood coagulation with plain and simple experiments. I agree with Dr. Feinstein that writing scientific papers with Dr. Rapaport was "painful" as he always aims for excellence in whatever he does!

I recall that when the grant money he received exceeded his actual expenditures he returned the excess amount. Unheard of! Un-sung hero? He was of the old school, when a person's reputation was based upon his accomplishments and knowledge and not on the exaggerations and lies of public relations hacks.
