Elisabeth Heimlich @1999

Peter M. Heimlich & Karen M. Shulman

In Spring 2002, Peter and Karen became aware of abusive and unethical conduct by Peter's father, celebrity doctor Henry J. Heimlich MD of Cincinnati, known for "the Heimlich maneuver" choking rescue treatment. That triggered their decade of research into Dr. Heimlich's career and related subjects. Since Spring 2003, their research has been the basis for scores of print and broadcast media reports.

When they were married in 1988, Peter Heimlich & Karen Shulman started a wholesale textile design and import company which they continue to operate. Before then, Karen had her own fine art jewelry business. In the 80s, Peter played bass and wrote songs with The Lloyds, one of San Francisco's fave New Wave club bands. Here's a video of heavy metal hottie Lita Ford lip-synching one of Peter's tunes on the 80's TV show, Dance Fever:

Karen was an English major and got her BS from UMass Amherst in 1984. Peter got his BS from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Journalism in 1977 where he spent many waking hours at the
Daily Orange. During his college years, Peter was a freelance writer for the Cincinnati Enquirer and other papers, and won a Hearst National Journalism Award.

They live in suburban Atlanta.

Good fortune and thanks to friends, known and unknown, who helped along the way.

Special ups to
Pamela Mills-Senn and the late Dr. Joseph S. Redding who weren't afraid to be the first to say they smelled a rat.
