Harry Aron, CSUS psychology professor
Harry Aron, who taught psychology at California State University, Sacramento, from 1955 until 1990, died Sunday of a heart attack in his Curtis Park home.
He was 78.
"Harry was the kindest person you could ever meet, but he did not suffer foolish reasoning gladly," recalled Joe Morrow, a former student who went on to become a Sacramento State psychology professor. "He tried to turn his students on to their highest possible level of performance."
A native of Mannheim, Germany, who immigrated to the United States with his family after Adolf Hitler took power in the 1930s, he was reared in San Francisco.
As a member of a U.S. Army intelligence unit, he returned to Germany during the final months of World War II, helping interrogate German prisoners.
Going to college on the GI Bill, he earned his bachelor's and master's degree and his doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley.
An early marriage ended in divorce.
It was in 1963, while teaching an undergraduate psychology class, that he met his second wife, the former Paula Edelman.
"I had six kids and was divorced and had just come back to school," said his wife, now an English professor at Sacramento City College. "I signed up for one of his classes. We started dating the next semester."
Admitting that she is biased, she went on to describe her husband as "a fantastic teacher ... the best, a brilliant, unique lecturer.
"First of all, he was very funny. He was very humorous. Also, he was very profound. He made you think about your circumstances. I didn't have any direction at that time."
After they began dating, and as his future wife worked her way toward an undergraduate degree, Mr. Aron encouraged her to seek a graduate degree and teach at the college level, she said.
They married in 1978, after the youngest of her children finished high school.
Survivors include his wife, Paula Aron of Sacramento; stepsons, David Aronson of Monson, Mass., and Ethan Aronson of San Francisco; and stepdaughters, Wendy Aronson of Mill Valley, Tina Burt of San Rafael and Anita Cook and Susan Aronson, both of Sacramento.
A memorial service will be scheduled after Christmas, his wife said.
