Anna Freud, 92 Yale Law Journal 219 (1982)


I appreciate the opportunity to share my feelings of loss, of indebtedness, and of the extreme good fortune of having had a chance to work closely with Anna Freud during the last two decades of her life.

Her death came as no surprise. Yet it is difficult to believe she is dead. To the end she was young in spirit and mind. Even following the series of hospitalizations that began last winter she continued to be actively and vigorously involved in bringing almost to completion our third book—this time with Sonja Goldstein joining her collaboration with Al Solnit and myself. In and out of the hospital Miss Freud worked with us regularly. During our six months in London last year, hardly a weekly work session closed without her breaking a log-jam in our thinking by spelling out precisely what needed to be done.
