A Nice Note
I received an extremely kind note from Dr. Ellenbogen. Any minor misunderstandings between us have been cleared up. He reports that in his youth, as a summer waiter in the Catskills, he waited on Jerry Lewis and had the opportunity to hear Mr. Lewis use his name. Mr. Lewis appears to have been a model customer, inquiring about the young Ellenbogen's goals and complimenting him on being enrolled in medical school. Dr. Ellenbogen also provides the wonderful detail that the family name was shortened from Katzenellenbogen.
