This essay lands somewhere between a tribute and a love letter to my mentor and dear friend, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton. Berry turned 98 this week, reveling with the same brilliance he has celebrated 97 birthdays before.
Berry is world-renowned for his astonishing career achievements. Professor Emeritus of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, he founded the Child Development Unit at Boston Children’s Hospital. His decades of clinical research resulted in the publication of more than 200 scholarly papers and more than 30 books on child development.
