unknown Born Jan 22, 1937. Started donating Jul 1, 1963. Stopped donating Jun 30, 1967. Jewish, Canadian born, East European descent as far as we know (Polish Jews). Height: 5'11". Black Straight hair. Brown eyes. Olive complexion. Medical School (MD). Retired Physician -- OB/GYN. Jewish. My dad is the donor. He is currently 81 years old and in good health. He was a medical OB/GYN resident at Michael Reese Hospital from 1963-1967. During this time, he regularly (sometimes weekly for 4 years) donated sperm for Drs. Melvin Cohen and Dr. Henry Hankin. He has 4 children, I live in the Chicago area still. We have just recently learned of the extent and process of his donations and are curious about half siblings. We have close family friends in the same situation -- a buddy of my dad's who also donated during those years, also with four children, three of whom live in the Chicago area.
