Harry Kozol (August 2, 1906 – August 27, 2008) was an American neurologist who helped establish the new fields of forensic psychiatry and neuropsychiatry[1] and also had public cases with Eugene O'Neill,[2] the Boston Strangler, and Patty Hearst.[3][4]

He married Ruth (Massell) Kozol and was the father of writer, educator, and activist Jonathan Kozol and Barbara (Kozol) Reckseitt. In later years Kozol suffered from Alzheimer's disease, of which his son wrote a book on the journey.[5]
