Yale Professor Paul Weiss at Stiles, Mid 1960's

Original Photograph from Archives
Paul Weiss was born on May 19, 1901, in Manhattan. Dr. Weiss sometimes said he became a philosopher after he was hit twice by horse-drawn carts as a boy. He began to wonder why he had been hit twice when others were not hit at all, and why he survived when others did not.
