     Dr. Mayberg is active in state and national psychiatric services and has
 maintained an active clinical practice for more than 40 years.
     "What else can you do that is fun for a lifetime?" he quickly responds as
 to why he continues to work, instead of retiring.  "Medicine is an occupation
 that is intellectually challenging -- I'm constantly learning -- and I enjoy
 it," he says.
     The Infinity Award is similar to the award given to astronaut John Glenn
 by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine for his return to space in his
 70s.  Dr. Mayberg, who is 76, received the award at a March conference in
 Minneapolis entitled "The Endangered Neuron."
     Currently, Dr. Mayberg resides in Minneapolis and is in private practice
 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
     He has held numerous appointments, including Clinical Professor of
 Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota Medical School.  Most recently, Dr.
 Mayberg was honored as one of the best doctors in the U.S. by the national
 publication "Best Doctors."
     In 1993, Dr. Mayberg received the Outstanding Private Practitioner of
 Psychiatry Award from the Minnesota Psychiatric Society.
     Dr. Mayberg served as a fighter pilot in World War II and a flight surgeon
 during the Korean conflict.  He graduated from the University of Minnesota in
 1948 and Medical School in 1952.
     Dr. Mayberg played an important role in the creation of psychiatric units
 at a number of Twin Cities' hospitals and directed psychiatric education and
 training at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
     He is a past president of the Minnesota Psychiatric Society and founding
 member of the Hennepin Mental Health Association.  He has served as consultant
 to the Department of Defense, Federal Aviation Administration and the
 Achievement Awards Board of the American Psychiatric Association and as an
 examiner for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
