Dr. Griminger was a soldier, scholar, mentor, confidante, quoter of Goethe and global citizen, but most of all a dedicated husband and father. He outwitted the Nazi Anschluss in Austria, fought in Palestine as a British soldier, and finally settled as a professor of Nutrition at Rutgers University. His 34 year career included scientific accomplishments and positions of trust and authority within the university, but his main legacy remains his inspiration of the many students whose lives he touched. He lived a full and interesting life.
