June 13, 1940 - September 2, 2016

Tucson, AZ (formerly of Newburgh, NY)

Herbert H., Krauss, Ph.D., was born June 13, 1940, in Philadelphia, PA. Herb lived in Newburgh, NY, for 14 years, and had a clinical psychology practice at the Family Center in Goshen for two. He died in Tucson, AZ, on September 2, 2016, surrounded by family, well-wishes of students and friends, and music he loved.

Herb was a devoted family man. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Beatrice Krauss; son, Michael and his wife, Susan; son, Daniel and his wife, Katrina, and his wonderful grandchildren, Ethan, Gabriel, Jared and Alex.

Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Hunter College, CUNY, and at Pace University, NY, Herb was department chair nearly a decade at each institution. As director of rehabilitation research at the International Center for the Disabled, he guided the survey on disability, access and barriers that provided the statistical evidence for the Americans with Disabilities Act. While at Pace, within blocks of the World Trade Center disaster, he implemented an intervention for those who had lost loved ones and guided Pace's own healing. A prolific scholar, he had over 115 publications, including six books, many co-authored with former students and colleagues. He was widely read in the social sciences, reading 5-6 books a week. Herb had a gift for friendship, was a magnet for dogs, and had a sharp, but endearing wit. He loved the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, his new friends in Arizona, and his dear friends in Newburgh.

Services will be held in Tucson, Philadelphia, New York and Portland, OR. The family is grateful for his care at Casa de la Luz Hospice in Tucson.
