Scope and content

File consists of an interview with Paul Nouwen interviewed by Paul Naus in the Netherlands. Paul Nouwen is Nouwen's brother and he lives in the Netherlands. The print is of Paul Nouwen dressed formally and posed in front of a painting; the picture is taken from his shoulders up. The interview is transcribed and available electronically and in hard copy. All transcriptions and recordings are in Dutch. Brief English notes from the interviewer are available in the file. They include: "Unfortunately because of a mix-up our interview started almost an hour late and Paul seemed a little discombobulated as a result. The interview also had to be shortened because of another appointment Paul had made. Much of the interview was focused on his disappointment about the lack of contact between himself and his brother and sister. Although he expressed much affection for Henri and indicated to have much respect for his publications, he had some critical things to say about him as well. A day or so later, Paul phoned me to tell me how much he enjoyed the interview, and especially the fact that he had been allowed to tell his story without being interrupted by questions. He also noted that he had no idea ahead of time that he was going to talk about his disappointment and sadness regarding the strained relationship with his brother and sister."
