Background
Professor Girshick was born in Russia on July 25, 1908. He came to New York City at the age of 15 in 1923. The principal of the elementary school he attended in New York was Angelo Patri who took a strong interest in the boy and, after he graduated from high school in 1929, intervened personally to get him admitted to Columbia College. In 1934, he entered graduate school at Columbia University to work with Professor Harold Hotelling, who arranged a stipend from a Carnegie Foundation grant.
