In Memoriam

Julian A. Weinberg, M.D.

1934 — 2012

Arthur, after retiring from his practice as an emergency psychiatrist,
three times a week spent his mornings studying the art of fencing.

Arthur's preferred weapon was the saber

Like all serious students of the art of fencing, Arthur knew he would never achieve mastery.
Like all fencers worthy of the name, he carried on nevertheless.

At seventy-seven years of age, Arthur was undergoing chemotherapy
and endured three hours of renal dialysis three times a week.
