Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Chair in Psychiatry

The Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Chair in Psychiatry was established at Jewish Hospital in 1989. The Ludwigs were active in the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. They were wonderful supporters of Jewish Hospital, and their support continues into perpetuity with their generous gift of an endowed professorship. Following the closure of the Department of Psychiatry at Jewish Hospital, the Ludwig Chair eventually became the Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Chair in Psychiatry at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
