Scope and content
File consists of an interview with Louis ter Steeg interviewed by Peter Naus in The Netherlands; ter Steeg lives in The Netherlands. Several typed letters from Nouwen on Holy Cross Fathers University of Notre Dame letterhead written to ter Steeg are in the file; they date 1970-1996 and are all in Dutch. There is one copy of handwritten letter from Nouwen to ter Steeg dated 1984. The interview is transcribed and is available electronically or in hard copy. All transcriptions and recordings are in Dutch. Brief English notes from the interviewer are in the file, "Louis, who was a close friend of Henri, told a well-articulated, well-rounded story about Henri and himself. 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".
