10-06 DR. DAVID CROWELLDAVID HARRISON CROWELL, PH.D. Dr. David Harrison Crowell, an internationally renowned psychologist and biomedical researcher, passed away on Saturday, August 23, 2014, in Honolulu, Hawaii; he was 95. He died at home of natural causes, surrounded by his family. Always known as Dave, he was born in Trenton, New Jersey, on July 5, 1919. His late parents were Thomas Crowell and Edith Mae Hall Crowell. Both parents were deaf and Dave’s first language was American Sign Language. A gifted student and dedicated scholar, Dave was encouraged early on to pursue the highest levels of education. He attended Drew University, breaking midway through college to serve in Europe in the Armed Forces during World War II. As 1st Lieutenant, he led a unit of African American soldiers. Upon returning to Drew University after the war, he met Doris Collins in a psychology seminar. They were married in New York City on September 14, 1947, and spent nearly the next 67 years together. After completing his doctoral work at the University of Iowa, Dave enlisted in the US Public Health Corps Reserve. Dave and Doris moved to Honolulu where Dave joined the Department of Psychology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He taught and advised generations of students as a Professor of Psychology. He was later appointed a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the John A. Burns School of Medicine. He served as Director of the Newborn Research Laboratory at the Pacific Biomedical Research Center, University of Hawaii, and as Principal Investigator and Director of numerous research projects at the University, East-West Center, Sleep Disorders Center at Straub Hospital, and Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. With a long-term interest in the development of newborns, Dave spent much of his professional career examining sleep apnea, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and brain development in infants and children. In 1975, he developed the truly remarkable technology and methodology to test hearing in infants, which resulted in the widely used hearing test that many newborns in Hawaii are given at birth. In addition to the many scientific articles and journal publications that spanned 60 years, he is known internationally as the primary author of the Atlas of Infant Polysomnography. Dave was committed to local, national, and international service in biomedical research serving at the Hawaii Department of Health, National Science Foundation, National Research Council, National Institute of Child Heath and Human Development, to name a few. He had boundless curiosity and a lifelong desire to understand how things worked, particularly on issues involving the developing brain. Dave loved sailing, playing tennis, and an occasional round of golf. He particularly cherished time spent with family and friends at the family beach house on the North Shore of Oahu and at the family farm on the Island of Hawaii. He enjoyed music and art. Always fascinated with the beauty and uniqueness of life, he painted, sculpted, wrote poetry and played the erhu, a Chinese string instrument. He is survived by his wife Doris, four children and their respective spouses, Michael Crowell and Leslie Hill, Sandra Crowell, Shannon and Doug DeMaster, Megan and Peter Sheridan, six grandchildren and one respective spouse, Moanikeala Crowell, Maile and Derrick Branson, Noelani Lupton, Dylan Atkinson, Kieran Sheridan, Kenton Sheridan, and great-grandson Cole Palimo’o. Dave’s was a life well-lived and it will be joyously celebrated at 3 o’clock in the afternoon on Saturday, October 18, 2014, at Arcadia, 1434 Punahou Street, Honolulu, Hawaii.
