In memoriam: Pearl Berlin

Dr. Pearl Berlin, retired UNCG professor and former head of the Department of Kinesiology, died on May 17, 2018.

The Brooklyn, N.Y., native came to North Carolina to lead UNCG’s Kinesiology department in 1971. She was the first professor in Kinesiology hired specifically to develop research across the (then) School of Health and Human Services, the obituary notes.

The UNCG Pearl Berlin Writing Award, given to graduate students for excellent thesis and dissertation writing, is named in her honor.

A public memorial will be held in the Virginia Dare Room of the Alumni House June 14 at 3 p.m.
