Ethel Tobach’s friends invited Erwin Marquit and Doris Marquit to a surprise birthday party in New York on 22 October to commemorate her ninetieth birthday. We again stayed at her apartment. At ninety, she was deeply involved in completing an article for a German encyclopedia on critical psychology, a current in psychology to which she was deeply opposed. She remains active on peace issues in the American Psychology Association, and has been working with psychologists from indigenous peoples in the United States and New Zealand. It was tricky maneuvering for the Marquits to arrange for our stay in her apartment while keeping the secret of the surprise party. [1]
