I was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts - not because my family had any connection with higher education, but because my father was a manager at the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in a nearby town and Cambridge was the nearest hospital - in 1920. In the ensuing years we moved a number of times as a result of my father's business. First Connecticut and then, when he became head of the Metropolitan's Canadian office, Ottawa. Because my mother believed in education broadly construed, we also lived in Europe and I went to school at the Lycée Jacquard in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1929-30. My brother and sister are both older than I am and were born before my father went off to World War I.
