Dr. Nahum R. Shulman, 70, clinical hematologist

Dr. Nahum Raphael Shulman, a prominent clinical hematologist and researcher at the National Institutes of Health whose work during a 50-year medical career led to important advances in treating blood disorders, died Wednesday of cancer at Washington Home Hospice in Washington. He was 70.

Born in Hartford, Conn., he grew up in Baltimore and graduated from the Johns Hopkins University medical school in 1947.

He joined the National Institutes of Health in 1957 and had been chief of the Clinical Hematology Branch of the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases since 1962.

"He made major contributions to understanding different disorders, including hemophilia, hepatitis and more recently platelet disorders," said Dr. Diane Reid, an NIH research associate who worked with Dr. Shulman for the past 12 years.

A resident of Kensington for 43 years, Dr. Shulman was a strong advocate of historic preservation in the town.

Services were private. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, the former Ilene Levin of Kensington; four daughters, Mauria Peckham of Silver Spring, Jane Shulman of Bethesda, Betsy Shulman of New York and Ann Shulman of Berkeley, Calif.; a sister, Nathalie Weisgall of Great Neck, N.Y.; and two grandchildren.
