Sanford B. Rosenman, Ph.D., 91, a microbiologist and senior research scientist, died of heard failure on Wednesday, November 23, 2005 at his home in Haverford, PA.  He was born in Minneapolis but grew up in Akron, OH, earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Akron in 1936, and master’s and doctorate degrees in bacteriology, immunology in 1939 and 1942, respectively, from Ohio State University.   For two years beginning in 1942, he served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps and directed laboratories at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, and Guadalcanal in the South Pacific.  After WWII, he returned to Philadelphia and began working as a microbiologist for Wyeth Laboratories.  Family members said he loved his job, which involved extensive research in antibiotics and related areas.  During his 35-year career at Wyeth in Radnor, PA, he cowrote numerous works about developments in his field.  After his retirement in 1980, he enrolled in classes at the University of Pennsylvania to delve into “a whole area of things he had interest in” but did not have time to explore, said his wife Doris.  At Penn, amoung other subjects,  he studied history and art history; at home, he took up photography and genealogy. The Rosenmans also began traveling extensively and visted Russia and other parts of Europe and the far east.  Besides his wife, his survived by a daughter, Suzzanne, a son, Stephen, and three grandchildren.
