Jim was a fellow at Northwestern University from 1974 to 1976 and spent his career in academic medicine at the University of Iowa and East Carolina Medical School where he was Division Chief of Allergy Asthma and Immunology and Vice-Chair of the Department of Medicine. He moved to Denver to the National Jewish Hospital in the months before he became ill. He was an author in three editions of Allergic Diseases.

Jim had many accomplishments in Allergy-Immunology including the early discovery that allergen vaccine therapy inhibited some of the late airway response to allergen.

Jim was liked by everyone and is deeply missed. It was stated, "As in so many things, Jim was the catalyst that altered and enlarged an experience, while managing to stay almost invisible himself."
