Dr. Robert Kornblum
04/10/00
When Dr. Robert Kornblum retired after three decades as a much-loved pediatrician in Mendham and Chester, he wrote a poignant letter to thank his patients.
"For 30 years you have trusted me with the care of your most prized possession -- your children," he wrote. "I've seen you as frightened young mothers become confident strongholds of the family. I've seen you as distressed newborns invite me years later to weddings and graduations."
Yesterday, Dr. Kornblum lost his two-year battle with cancer. He was 63.
Born in Antwerp, Belgium, Dr. Kornblum and his family fled the threat of Nazi occupation in 1939. They lived in Brazil for about two years before relocating to New York City in 1941.
There Dr. Kornblum's father resumed his profession as a diamond dealer in Manhattan. The family lived on the Upper West Side and Dr. Kornblum attended the Horace Mann School in Riverdale, N.Y.
After earning his undergraduate degree at Columbia College and his medical degree at the Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, he served as chief pediatric resident at both the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia and Jacobi Hospital-Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
In 1966, Dr. Kornblum enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Korea where he helped found the Bong-Eun Orphanage in the Seoul region.
"Besides his work during the week in the Army," said his wife, Hana Brin Kornblum, "he would go and spend the weekend caring for those children who had basically been left, dropped, neglected."
Fluent in Korean, Dr. Kornblum grew close with children in the orphanage -- the children of Korean women and American servicemen. Some would write to him for years.
In 1969, Dr. Kornblum set up a practice in his new home in Mendham, doubling the town's pediatricians -- to two.
The other doctor, David Knoop, had a busy practice and the two developed a congenial relationship.
"He was beloved by his patients," said Knoop. "He had a lot of common sense in him and a great deal of compassion."
"I just remember never being afraid to go to the doctor," said Karen Gerwin-Stoopack, who first went to Dr. Kornblum as a child in 1971.
When giving shots Dr. Kornblum would say, "'OK, are you ready? OK, I'm almost about to do it,' and while he was saying that, he already did it, he would trick you, and then it was too late to cry," she said.
Over the years, Dr. Kornblum grew well-known in Morris County as a specialist in developmental pediatrics and school health. He was school physician in Chester and Mendham Township.
As an attending physician at Morristown Memorial Hospital, Dr. Kornblum helped found the pediatric residency program and was acting chairman of pediatrics for a time.
"He didn't speak a great deal at department meetings, but when he did speak, everyone sort of sat up and listened and paid attention to his words," said Knoop.
In October 1999, Dr. Kornblum was honored for lifetime achievement by the Department of Pediatrics at Morristown Memorial.
Over more than two decades, Dr. Kornblum donated his time to the Neighborhood House in Morristown, which holds a clinic for disadvantaged families. "He treated the poor as well as the rich and those who couldn't pay didn't pay," said his wife.
In 1977, Dr. Kornblum married Brin Kornblum, a neuro-chemist from Israel whom he met two years earlier through a friend. The two have one daughter, Tamar, 16.
Dr. Kornblum, an active member of the Morristown Jewish Center, played piano and was fluent in French and Hebrew. He also enjoyed tennis and sailing.
For his 60th birthday, Brin Kornblum gave her husband piano lessons from the noted jazz musician, Rio Clemente.
Dr. Kornblum continued to play the piano until his death. "That's how he eased his pain and soothed his soul, with music," said Brin Kornblum.
In addition to his wife and youngest daughter, Dr. Kornblum is survived by a brother, Dr. Sylvan Kornblum, and two daughters from a previous marriage, Rebecca Kornblum of Asheville, N.C., and Jennifer Kornblum of Fort Worth, Texas.
Funeral services will be held at noon today at Bailey Funeral Home, Mendham. Burial will follow at Beth Israel Cemetery in Cedar Knolls.
