Norman’s family originally came from Belarus. He grew up in Carbondale, Pennsylvania, where he experienced a fair amount of antisemitism, being called a “dirty Jew” and “Christ killer.” Nancy was raised in Marion, North Carolina as a Presbyterian, but converted when she married Norman. Norman and Nancy met when they both worked in a psychiatric hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, where they both worked. Norman was in the Army in World War II and experienced antisemitism. Since he was educated in psychology he was assigned to being a psychiatric social worker. They moved to Athens where Norman worked at the University of Georgia in the School of Social Work. He was part of the original faculty when it was set up. During his career with the University he did research on neglected children in treatment centers among other things. Norman and Nancy are now retired.
