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."

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".

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".
