Hugo Münsterberg. His Life and Work
Münsterberg, Margaret
this now, but let me wait to see what I shall see!—when the 
volume comes out. It will be a riddle and communicate a zest to 
life. In any case I hope that you will succeed in getting the 
proofs corrected this summer, though it will doubtless be hard 
work. Shall you go to the Paris Congress? 
I much enjoyed reading the Atlantic article. I think it is 
the cleverest thing you have written so far, and the English

must have been an enormous task to communicate so suddenly 
with all my graduate students, to arrange for obtaining their 
photographs, and to present the results in such exquisite form. 
Nothing could please me more. And I am especially thankful 
that no gift from you, my colleagues, was attempted. And yet 
it makes me sore to think that this work should have fallen on 
you, just when you should have been resting yourself after the 
toils undertaken in another public interest. If I did not know
