1981 Interview with Dr. Leo Buscaglia by Don Ray (BHS '67)


Don writes:
Dr. Leo Buscaglia was a U.S.C. professor who decided to teach a class about love --- about how each person can live a life of love and joy. It's a decision, he would say. In the 1980s, he was one of PBS's most popular lecturer and was soon selling millions of copies of his first book, "Love" and a number of subsequent books. I was lucky enough to interview him in 1981 and ask him the kinds of questions his followers, and critics maybe, wished that they could ask him. Shortly after this interview, Buscaglia went into the hospital for multiple bypass surgery. In 1992, he died of a heart attack. Over the years, I regularly revisit this interview so he can remind me of the principles that have helped me lead a more peaceful and satisfying life. ---Don Ray,
