January 4, 2021

GABRIEL - Hugh Paul, M.D. We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear family member, Dr. Hugh Paul Gabriel at the age of 86. He was a distinguished Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the New York University Medical School. Dr. Gabriel co-founded the Pediatric Psychiatry Consultation Service at Bellevue Hospital and provided consultation to pediatric patients at both Bellevue and NYU Langone Medical Center.

During his more than 40 year career at NYU Medical Center and School, he was Director of Student Medical Education Training, Adult Residency Training, and Child Psychiatry Residency Training. He was an NYU University Senator and President of the Faculty - Senator's Council for the University.

Dr. Gabriel leaves a great legacy of professionalism, integrity and clinical excellence that significantly contributed to the specialty of pediatric psychiatry.

Dr. Gabriel was the son of Fred Siegfried Gabriel and Ruth Sobel and brother of their adopted son Nathan. He was a proud graduate of the Horace Mann School, Harvard College, and NYU Medical School. Dr. Gabriel was married for 52 years to his dearest, life-long partner, Delores Danilowicz, M.D., Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the NYU School of Medicine. Although they had no children, their gift to past, present and future generations of aspiring physicians is the Danilowicz - Gabriel Scholarship Fund at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

Dr. Gabriel is survived by his cousins in the Wilder, Gabriel, and Loewenthal families.
