Memories of Dr. Nevyas

Jacob Neyvas

Dr. Nevyas (who also has a son who is an ophthalmologist with multiple locations) would tutor me in organic chemistry when I was a Temple student. In the lab, we were at lunch one day and he asked me to hand him a bottle of acetic acid. He then proceeded to pour some drops on his food. I said, “what are you doing?” After he asked me to smell it, he then said a small drop of acetic acid was equal to vinegar.
