Bernard A. Weisberger

I attended Columbia College as a subway commuter [1939–1943?], and encountered a couple of sensational teachers, one of them Jacques Barzun, for whom, in my junior year, I wrote a paper on the Paris Commune of 1871, which earned an “A” of which I am still proud and some personal encouragement.
