So long, Montreal: Article by Leonard's classmate - Kenneth Asch

Postby ScottM » Wed Mar 07, 2018 1:54 pm

I'm not sure if this article has made it onto the forum before. So apologies if it has already been included somewhere here already. It was published at the end of November 2017, a year after Leonard's passing.

I came across this insight from Leonard's classmate, at McGill university, Kenneth Asch with an interesting perspective on the environment at McGill, and in Montreal in general, during the period that both he and Leonard attended the university. I think it may point us to some of the contributing factors that could have shaped younger Leonard's outlook, philosophies and ambitions.

I found it to be an an enjoyable article. I hope you find it so too.
