I met Ron in the early seventies, but had not had any contact with him since then. He gave an articulate account of his relationship with Henri and he spoke with much affection about him. He needed a little prompting. He made little reference to Henri's sexuality. Instead, he places much emphasis on his gratitude for Henri's friendship and on the fun they had together." The pictures discussed in the interview are available on cdrom at the archives.

Interview with Rene van Eyden

File consists of an interview with Rene van Eyden interviewed by Peter Naus in the Netherlands; van Eyden lives in the Netherlands. Two interviews were conducted by Peter Naus, June 9 2004 and April 29 2005. The interviews are transcribed and available electronically. All transcriptions and recordings are in Dutch. Brief English notes for each interview are available in the file. They include: "June 9 2004, Rene was a few years ahead of Henri in the seminary. He gave an interesting description of Henri's physical bearing as a seminarian. He told delightful anecdotes about Henri's seminary years and his years at the University of Nijmegen. He had made notes ahead of time to help him stay on track in telling his story. He said little about Henri's shadow side. He obviously liked Henri very much but did not want to talk with as much affection about him as Louis ter Steeg did. It's puzzling that Rene has not been interviewed about Henri before because it is obvious that he has much information about him. I would like to interview him again with specific attention for his own family background and his perceptions of the more problematic aspects of Henri's work and personality. Perhaps Rene's wife, Akke, should be interviewed as well because of her experience in Latin America and how these compare with those Henri garnered at about the same time." "April 29, 2005, 'Rene is a former priest of the archdiocese of Utretcht and a long-time friend of Henri. He was also a colleague of him at the 'Katholike Theologische Hogeschool Utrecht'. I interviewed Rene last year, but wanted some more feedback from him on Henri's time at the 'Hogeschool' and also on Henri's weaker points. He again did not say much with respect to the latter, mainly because, I think, he simply is not the kind of person who tends to be critical of others. He gave some helpful insights into why Henri was not much respected by some of his fellow priests".

Brief English notes from the interviewer are in the file. They include: 15/06/04 "This was for me the most fascinating of the interviews because of the rather extensive analysis Wim put forth regarding Henri's personality and work. He is clinical psychologist with a psychoanalytic background who knew Henri for a long time and considered himself a close friend. He also knew Henri's family very well. Before the interview started we discussed briefly his ethical concerns about discussing impressions of Henri. I told him that in interviews and pieces I had written about Henri I had been guided by two considerations: not to divulge anything about Henri that was not already in the public domain and to protect as much as possible the privacy of Henri's family". 24/04/05 "Wim is a Professor Emeritus of Psychology. He is still active as a therapist and he is a member of a number of advisory boards a governing councils. I interviewed him last year as well because he and his wife, Milene, are long-time friends of Henri. This time around I wanted to focus on Henri's homosexuality because he had not said much about it in the first interview. He believes rather strongly that the emphasis should be on Henri's impact on people and how he changed the lives of many. As he stated in the tape, Henri's homosexuality as such is not a big issue, but that he did not come to grips with it is. Yet, it would be entirely inappropriate to interpret Henri's writing as the expression of a frustrated, neurotic gay person. One should not hide his homosexuality nor draw undue attention to it".

The interview is transcribed and available electronically and in hard copy. All of the transcriptions and recordings are in Dutch. Brief English notes from the interviewer are available in the file. They include: "Jan is an entrepreneur who owns businesses in Holland as well as in the US. He used to work for a Dutch evangelical TV station and in this capacity he made several TV programs about Henri. In fact, Henri got his heart attack on the eve of a trip to St. Petersburg were he was to go with Jan to make a TV program featuring Rembrandt's painting of the Prodigal Son that figured so prominently in Henri's book 'The Return of the Prodigal Son'. It is rather remarkable that Jan, who comes from an ultraconservative, Protestant background, ever got interested in Henri's work, let alone became a close friend of him. Just like Ron van den Bosch, he reminded me sometimes of Henri because of the way he talked and gestured. Jan did not feel comfortable talking about Henri's homosexuality; I'm surprised he even mentioned it. Overall however, he was very cooperative and eager to give his impressions of Henri".

They include: "Jan is a former priest of the archdiocese of Utrecht; he was in the seminary a few years after Henri. Since his retirement from the position of secretary of Pax Christie The Netherlands, he has been working for a number of Dutch human rights organizations. Jan is gay and my impression is that he served as a confident to Henri who discussed his struggles with homosexuality with him. In the interview, Jan brought Henri's homosexuality to the fore. He believes Henri's restlessness and fatigue were related to his sexual struggles. Going by Jan's information, there is no doubt Henri engaged in sexual encounters, with one man in particular. Jan did not reveal this man's identity but suggested he be interviewed for the project. Presumably Jan is willing to provide the contact, if necessary. I think Jan and I had an excellent rapport which enabled him to talk rather freely. He sent me an email after to let me know he thought we had a good interview".

Interview with Maria ter Steeg

File consists of an interview with Maria ter Steeg interviewed by Peter Naus in the Netherlands. ter Steeg is a theologian living in the Netherlands.

They include: "Maria was the first female pastor of the Dutch Roman Catholic radio station and she is currently a member of the governing council of the archdiocese of Utrecht. She got to know Henri mostly because he and her husband, Louis ter Steeg, were friends. She did not believe she had much to contribute to the project, but I found her observations very useful. She made a few suggestions as to why Henri was not much respected by some of his fellow priests in the Utrecht diocese. The one she stressed is that his socio-economic background set him apart. Where many of his fellow priests were lower or lower middle class, Henri was from an upper middle class to higher class family. She also made interesting comments about his attachment to Daybreak; she thought it may have been the first place where Henri made real connections with people. Her mother was a good friend of Henri's mother and Maria talked a little bit about what her mother had told her about Henri's family".

The print of Cardinal Simonis is from the shoulder up wearing his clerical collar; the background is blurry. The interview is transcribed and available electronically or in hard copy. All recordings and transcriptions are in Dutch. Brief English notes from the interviewer are available in the file. They include: "I was pleasantly surprised the Cardinal decided to keep the appointment for the interview, despite having returned from Rome a couple of days before. I wonder if Maria ter Steeg put in a good word for me. At any rate, the interview went well, except it was a little rushed because the Cardinal arrived late and had an appointment immediately following our session. He was self-assured and did not hesitate to give his opinion on Henri and his publications. He is no fan of the latter, although his comments about Henri were rather positive! I prompted him to talk at some length about the changes in Dutch Roman Catholicism after the Second Vatican Council, because these changes are part of the context in which Henri decided to leave Holland for good. The Cardinal has a reputation of being rather conservative - he prefers to call it 'orthodox' - and the interview illustrates it rather well. He was quite amiable and willing to participate in the project".

Louis was a few years behind Henri in seminary. He sketched well Henri's position among his fellow-seminarians. Louis got very emotional a few times when talking about Henri's problems. If there is a follow-up visit to Holland, it might be worthwhile to interview Louis' wife, Maria. She is very familiar with Henri's publications, in fact translated some of them into Dutch, I think, and might have some insightful things to say about the impact of Henri's writings in Holland".

They include: “Fic is a retired priest from the archdiocese of Utretcht. He knew Henri from the Rijsenburg seminary, although he claimed he never got to know him all that well. He was also, like Henri, a member of the Newman club at seminary. He came across as a thoughtful, kind man who has weathered the storms in Dutch Roman Catholicism very well. His feelings about Henri's books were mixed; he thought Henri overly 'spiritualised' social problems, something he also noticed when he visited Henri in New York City somewhere in the seventies. I wish I could have talked some more with him about the climate in the Dutch Roman Church and how he had come to grips with it. He made several self deprecatory comments with respect to the interview and did not seem convinced by my assurances that his observations were very useful. I should mention also that he not respond initially to my request for an interview. I asked the assistance of another interviewee, Rene van Eyden, to convince him to participate."
