Memories Timeline


  1. I met Dr. Kadner as a freshman student at Loyola in 1942. We began a long fiendship which last throughtout the war and to a return on 1946 when I enterd Loyola again to finish up the degree process. we remained friends all these years and enjoyed talking and dicussing the events of the day. I will miss him and his humor very much.

  2. Dr. Carl Kadner was my first Biology professor at Loyola University. His gentle guidance, his stimulating lectures, and his magnetic presence convinced me to try and achieve my greatest potential. Thanks to him, I reached some of my loftiest goals. The world is a sadder place without this very gentle man.

  3. What a wonderful tribute to a terrific man who lived a full life! He will always be unforgetable to us as well! We will always remember his love of butterflies! God Bless Carl!

  4. Thank you, Carl, for the wonderful education, inspiration, and friendship. Without your mentoring, I would not have become the physician that I am today.

    It will be very strange driving down Loyola Blvd and not stopping at 8100 to say hello and chat. We are comforted by the knowledge that you are with G’d and once again with Beth.
