Anne Bodenheimer, UCLA friend and coordinator of the Fulbright Scholars Enrichment Program at UCLA, died on June 21, 2018. She was 104 years old. Bodenheimer was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1914. After completing a baccalaureate degree in Germany in 1933, she was sent to Paris by her father. There, she completed a juris doctorate at the École de Droit in 1937, and she worked at the Institute of Comparative Law in Paris until 1939. She lost family members and her fiancé in the Holocaust, and she escaped twice from Nazi concentration camps. Following the war, Bodenheimer emigrated to the United States, where she married Fred S. Bodenheimer.
She joined the UCLA staff in 1961 and coordinated the Fulbright Scholars Enrichment Program at UCLA for 29 years, continuing to work part-time for the program after her official retirement in October 1984. Eye problems prompted her to seek care at the UCLA Stein Eye Institute, where, for several years, she supported the research of Dr. Kevin M. Miller (RES ’91), Kolokotrones Chair in Ophthalmology, and Dr. Michael B. Gorin (RES ’86, FEL ’83), Harold and Pauline Price Chair in Ophthalmology. Bodenheimer is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Howard and Michelle Bodenheimer, a grandson and a niece and nephew.
