Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Birth: Jul. 8, 1926
Bezirk Zürich
Zürich, Switzerland
Death: Aug. 24, 2004
Maricopa County
Arizona, USA

Psychiatrist, Author. The first-born of triplet girls, she graduated from medical school at the University of Zurich in 1957. She immigrated to the United States in 1958 to continue her studies in New York City and completed her training in psychiatry in 1963 at the Colorado School of Medicine. Throughout her career she wrote more than 20 books dealing with the natural phenomenon of dying; the first, and best-known, "On Death and Dying," was released in 1969. This book introduced the five stages of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. These stages are now associated with any major loss or life-changing experience. Her work was instrumental in strengthening the hospice movement in the United States and made the study of the psychological, social, and physical issues associated with dying an important and accepted part of medical training. She was the recipient of twenty honorary degrees in science, law, humanities, and divinity. In 1999, she was one of Time Magazine's "100 Most Important Thinkers of the Century." In 2007 she was inducted into the National Woman's Hall of Fame. (bio by: Beth Painter)
