Early life and education
Kenneth Altshuler was born on 11 April 1929 in Paterson, New Jersey to Jacob and Altie Altshuler. He graduated from Cornell University (1948) and received his M.D. degree from the University at Buffalo, School of Medicine at age of 23 (1952). He did an internship in Kings County Hospital Center. In 1953-1955, he served in the Navy leaving the service with the rank of Lt. (J.G.) in the Medical Corps. After the military service, he underwent a specialty training in psychiatry and psychoanalysis at Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.
Career
In 1973, Kenneth Altshuler joined the Columbia University faculty where he focused on the research of mental illnesses among deaf patients and in geriatric psychiatry. In 1973-1977, he was managing all undergraduate education in psychiatry at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. In 1977, he left Columbia University, moved to Texas, and became the chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He pioneered expanding the faculty from five to over one hundred full-time physicians and raising fifty-two million dollars in departmental endowments, including funds for ten chairs and two research centers. He retired in 2019 and appointed a Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry.
He has served as a director of the National Board of Medical Examiners, as a president of the American Association of Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry in 1990-1991, as a board member and later, in 1996, a president of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. In 1999, he has been appointed to the board of the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation, by then-Governor George W. Bush, and served for five years. He has also served on the boards and advisory boards of the local psychiatric and charity organizations.
Personal life
He had three children from his first marriage, Steven L. Altshuler, Dara Altshuler, and Lori L. Altshuler, and six grandchildren. In 1987, he married Ruth Collins Sharp, an American philanthropist. He and his late wife were known for their civic engagement in Dallas and philanthropic activities in North Texas, including to UT Southwestern. After her wife died in 2017, he established a fund at UT Southwestern, the Ruth & Ken Altshuler Fund for Clinical Psychiatry and the Kenneth Z. Altshuler Fund for Psychiatric Education, to support clinical research and education programs related to mental illness.
Kenneth Altshuler died of COVID-19 complications on 6 January 2021.
