Dr. Brian E. Henderson, a towering figure in American medicine and former dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC, died Saturday after a 13-month battle with lung cancer. He was 77.
When President Richard Nixon declared a War on Cancer the second leading cause of death in the United States in 1971, Henderson left his career as a virology researcher to battle a disease that eventually took his life.
Henderson eventually became one of the worlds most respected authorities in cancer epidemiology, the study of how the disease spreads and can be controlled. He specialized in how environment and genetics contribute to cancer and is often cited for his research on how diet could reduce cancer risk.
Henderson was an intellectual force of nature who had many gifts to share both through science and in simple acts of kindness, said Dr. Stephen Gruber, director of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The world is truly a better place because of Brian Henderson, Gruber said in an email.
Henderson was dean of the Keck School of Medicine of USC from 2004 to 2007 and was a founding chair of the schools Department of Preventative Medicine. He was a founding member of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and also served as its director when it opened in 1983.
Amy Lee, associate director for basic research at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, called Henderson a visionary who saw talent in people when they didnt see it themselves.
Henderson, a UC Berkeley graduate who later earned a medical degree from the University of Chicago Medical School, loved the Giants and San Francisco 49ers. His respect for Trojan football grew over the 40 years that he spent going to USC games, his family wrote on a memorial website.
Brian had a great passion for family and loved to gather his family around him, particularly at the holidays, his five children wrote. His favorite annual event was the familys Thanksgiving celebration at their home in Wawona, in Yosemite National Park.
Henderson is survived by his wife, Judith; his five children; and 11 grandchildren. His family will celebrate his life at 11 a.m. Friday at Holy Family Church in South Pasadena.
