The Day is Short

Glazer, Nathan. "The Day Is Short." Commentary (1982).

Excerpt: Morris Abram is a former president of Brandeis University, of the American Jewish Committee, and of the Field Foundation; a former candidate for the Senate from New York; and a man who has held many official appointments, from the United Nations to committees investigating nursing homes in New York. Still only in his sixties and vigorous, he has been impelled to set down his autobiography at this relatively early date because of his long battle with an extremely virulent life-threatening form of cancer.
