Dr Schumacher was a force in rheumatology for more than half a century through his multiple roles as a researcher, clinician, mentor, and educator. He is not likely to be soon forgotten by the rheumatology community; however, it is hoped that this chapter can provide a faithful recollection that will help bring his memory to life for some and that rings true to those who knew him and learned from him.

Keywords: Biopsy; Inflammatory response; Osteoarthritis; Rheumatoid arthritis; Rheumatology.
