Timothy Loeb ’57

Born in Oakland, California, to Edwin and Lisl Loeb, Tim wrote his thesis, Reactions of Apocynol with Prof. Marsh Cronyn ’40 [chemistry 1952‑89]. He earned his doctorate in biology from Rockefeller University. He taught biology for several years in Cali, Colombia, where he and his first wife, Mary, also founded the Instituto Tobias Emanuel, in honor of their son, Tobias. Tim loved music, especially playing the guitar, and he was an avid reader. He is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Nancy Loeb; children, Julie Garcia, Paul Loeb, Christina Freed, Alejo Loeb, Marcelino Loeb, Pio Loeb, Sofie Loeb, Laura Loeb, and Emily Loeb; and siblings Barbara Kennedy, Peter Loeb, and Alison O’Briend-Schardt.
