This is Robert Brown the interviewer, February 2, Today we're going back to your earliest In fact, I'd like you, if you would, to perhaps discuss a bit your childhood. You were from a New York family.
Were you raised in New York? In the winter we were in New York and, because my father was a doctor and he was practicing in New York in our bathroom. We had a red stone house and he took that and made an office out of the bathroom.
They were nice tile floors, and my mother was a society girl, but very interested in all kinds of things, and we weren't all that wealthy. But she belonged to Heywood Broun's circle and to all sorts of reading things that--with very interesting friends like Dorothy Elmhurst who was Dorothy Whitney, and they were--I was always having fun through my mother's friends because they were all so wealthy and they had roofs we could go on and we could play together.

And then she was gone a month to California because kind friends and relatives wanted her to have some happiness and some healthy exercise to forget all that had happened.
