I just finished reading a little booklet that I've had on my shelf entitled:
Fairy Stories. Why, When, How

I just picked it up recently and re read it. It was published in 1986...

Is this the same lady?

A lovely publication.

The best professor and educator I ever had - She
was a friend of Anna Freud - May she rest in eternal peace. A former Manhattanville Grad Student.

May hers be a living and loving memory for those who knew and loved her. As a colleague of her son, Michael, I'm reminded that we each, in our way, honor and carry on with work of our parents, grandparents and ancestors.

We must keep the Lewin family in our prayers, thoughts, stories and teachings. The younger generations who join NTL need to be reminded. Thanks to you and your Mother for keeping your legacy, our legacy in motion and in front of us.

As a fellow social psychologist and Miriam's successor at Manhattanville, I will forever cherish our talks about Kurt, group processes, and the value of a good theory. My thoughts are with your family.
