Biographical Note

Ewald W. Busse was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1917. He received his AB degree from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, an MD from Washington University in St. Louis (1942), and an honorary Sc.D. degree from Westminster College (1960). During WWII, he served in the army, where he learned electroencephalographic skills. After his time in the army, Busse trained in psychiatry at the University of Colorado. He later joined the faculty. Early on in his research career, Busse discovered a unique spike on EEG in the temporal lobe that was associated with aging. He devoted the rest of his career to the examination of longitudinal study of normal aging and its psychopathological variants.

Busse, an early leader in the field of geriatric psychiatry, joined the faculty at Duke Medical Center in 1953 and chaired the Department of Psychiatry until 1974. While at Duke, Busse founded the Duke Center on Aging and Human Development and served as its founding director (1954-1970). He wanted to study the physiological, psychological, and social aspect of aging. Previous studies focused on elderly people living in institutions. Busse, however, recruited healthy volunteers older than 60 to participate in a long-term program to see how they aged in familiar settings. His program, the Duke Longitudinal Study, begun in 1957, eventually involved 800 older adults who submitted to rigorous medical and psychological examinations over 25 years. His findings increased the understanding of the physical, mental, social, and economic aspects of aging. He was named the J. P. Gibbons Professor of Psychiatry (1965). He also served as Dean of Medical and Allied Health Education (1974-1982) at Duke. In the 1960s, under Busse, the first training program in geriatric psychiatry in the United States was established.

Busse received many awards and honor throughout his career. His research and professional awards include the Edward B. Allen Award (1967), the Strecker Award (1967), the Kleemeier Award (1968), the Menninger Award (1971), the Modern Medicine Award (1972), the Freeman Award (1978) the Thewlis Award (1979), the Brookdale Award (1982), and the Sandoz Award (1983). He is among those listed "Who's Who in Frontier Science and Technology", and he was part of the President's Biomedical Research Panel (1957-1977).

Busse served as chair of the Advisory Committee on Geriatrics and Gerontology of the Veterans Administration, as well as president of the American Psychiatric Association, the American Geriatrics Society, the Gerontological Society of America, the American Association of Departments of Psychiatry, the Southern Pacific Association, and the Southeastern Medical Dental Society. He was a member of the Academy of Sciences and the director of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Busse authored or coauthored over 200 scientific articles and edited several books including "Behavior and Adaptation in Late Life", "Mental Illness in Later Life", and "The Handbook of Geriatric Psychiatry." He was also the senior editor of the "American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry" for three editions.

Busse was married to Ortrude S. Busse, and they had three daughters and one son: Ortrude, Barbara, Emily, and Ewald Richard. Busse died in 2004.
