We were in Indian Guides together, and we would do projects together in the house. He had very difﬁcult years of growing up while we were married; he went into therapy when he was approximately seven years old and used to have—I’d call them tantrums. He didn’t seem to have a good image of himself; whereas his older brother was much more academic and much more athletic, Arthur developed very slowly in those areas. At twelve he was going to therapy, and he was acting out really very physically, ﬁghting with his brother, running out of the house, breaking things, and doing very poorly academically in school.
Our home has always been both a philosophical, thoughtful home where we talked values; about the idea of death and so forth. I know that, in the last year or so before he killed himself, he was studying religion and the whole idea of the afterlife and the purpose of life, and he was discussing this with his older brother. They became very close friends in the last few years. As I said, his older brother is brilliant; Arthur obviously was brilliant. They could talk on a very high level. His older brother had no idea that inside Arthur he was looking at this from a different vantage point.
Ess: So there was a real sibling difference? dad: All I could see was that it was unfortunate for the little guy to have this big guy two years older having developed so quickly so well. ess: Do you think that was one of the things that bugged him? dad: And, in addition, his mother tends to be, at times, rather rigid. Her way of having the kids go to sleep at a certain time, eat at a certain time, eat a certain amount; all these things. I was raised in a very laissez-faire atmosphere at home. My whole stimulation for academic and personal excellence came from the peer groups.
