Adam J. Lieberman

Adam J. Lieberman died suddenly in New York City on June 27, 1997. At Dartmouth, Adam was a major contributor and writer for the Dartmouth Review. He was a cum laude English major and wrote an honors thesis under the tutelage of Prof. Donald Pease. He worked at one time for Prof. Arthur Hertzberg and lived for several semesters in the Hillel housing. At the time of his death, he was Director of Development and Media at the American Council on Science and Health in New York City. Prior to that, he had taught English at several New York City public high schools, and taught English, History and Economics at the Windsor School, a private high school in Flushing, NY. While teaching, he also had several articles published in local papers in New York, and recently had an article published in Mother Jones on the Internet. Adam is survived by his parents, Martin and Judith Lieberman, and his brother Steven.

  • Adam was very kind and smart person, who unfortunately, as he shows in his stunning article in Mother Jones http://www.motherjones.com/politics/1997/04/why-i-left got entagled with a very regressive crowd. And he did so because it was they who took him in, and we did not. And for that I feel guilty. Because the article screams; “I am very lonely”. But it was too late. The article appeared only three months before his death. And I did not know that his life turned out like that. Still, when I recall our conversations at Dartmouth, both the serious and the flippant ones, there was always a sense that Adam did not quite believe in himself and therefore put himself down whenever I tried to encourage him to something other than that at which he excelled. And he truly excelled at writing. And he was very good at giving his time to someone like me who was also an outsider in college. He filled that time with answers to questions on algebra or American politics or any other topic I was clueless about. I will remember him for that. For what is more valuable than giving that which you have so little of. And Adam, it turned, had less time than most of us.
