Saybrook's community, united in scholarship and practice, is spread across the world -- and so Arne's friends and colleagues likewise stretch around the globe, mourning the loss of such a unique man and vital scholar.
Appreciating the difficulties of gathering such a dispersed community together on short notice for a memorial service, his family has asked that a virtual memorial -- a living document testifying to his life, passion, and legacy -- be held online.
We invite you to be part of it: if you have a fond recollection or favorite story about Arne, or just want to say "thank you" or "goodbye," please share it with his community of loved ones in the comments section below.
Arne has been a member of our faculty since 1978 and most recently served as Director of Research. He has deeply touched the lives of so many of our students and colleagues over the years. Willson Williams, co-Chair of the PHS faculty, knew Arne well. “Arne was one of the most gentle and kind people I have ever known. He had a gentle soul. He was thoughtful and caring and thought of others before himself. He had a generous and kind spirit.”
