Author: Arthur Tenenbaum

Dr. Arthur Tenenbaum was born and raised in Kansas City, MO and in Silver Spring, MD before settling in Newton, MA. He attended Harvard, which was at the end of his driveway. Arthur enjoyed white male privilege tempered with Jewish guilt before disappointing his parents by becoming a psychiatrist. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Harvard in 1963, and his M. D. from Northwestern in 1967. Dr. Tenenbaum served his country honorably in peaceful Okinawa in our dishonorable war and toiled in every conceivable branch of psychiatry for 50 years. He married 42 years ago to a strong and productive and generative lawyer has three strong children and two adorably precocious grandchildren. He retired at age 75 and still enjoys skiing, riding his wife's Vespa, and playing bassoon.
