Of course, he would have cleaned my clock, as I had peaked at the age of six. As we were both history buffs, this was often a topic of conversation.
Jack Geiger, a Professor of Medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital, around the corner from the club, where Dick was also a patient. At that time, Dr. Geiger was a prominent member of an organization called Physicians for Social Responsibility. Geiger viewed this as the ultimate public health issue. Buckley, Jr.

He had apparently not been a liberal in his youth. This did not mean that Dick had been converted into a Buckley conservative. Most folks who are this smart and reflective are impossible to pigeonhole, and Dick was no exception. On abortion, Dick was clearly pro choice, and he maintained a nuanced view of the world.
Stone was an intellectual whom he would quote. Fortunately, this was an intellectual current with which I already had some familiarity, so we got into it pretty well together, and I was able to keep up. I think that this must have impressed Dick. All told, I must have heard Dick around 20 times during my 5 year stay in New York for medical school, and one year of internship. I have such fond memories of those times. It was via a call from James P.
I had once suggested to Dick that the 2 of us together should write a biography of James P. At the time, none existed. Dick informed me that one was already in preparation, and had begun as the senior thesis of one Mr. Brown, then Yale pre-med! So it was Dick who first alerted me to the existence of this other Jewish doctor, born in , and a Sting Baby, who was also a passionate fan of James P.
It turned out to be something of a passing of the torch, as Dick died shortly after I moved back to California. Andrew Sordoni.
When I learned that he had passed away it saddened me deeply, for obvious reasons Another genius at the piano gone, but by no means forgotten. What joy he still gives,,I wonder if somehow he knows. I hope so! Watch his hands. Thank you so much Michael for this more than just wonderful post.
I always read your blog, and the comments. Thank you Mr, Mark. Much love to you, NM. His back facing the audience it was how the piano was situated he would turn around after each number with a big grin and with great sincerity thank the audience, such as it was. I too whizzed through law school GWU on full scholarship but could never bother studying for or passing that bar exam— too busy working at top-level without a license! Requiescat in pace.
I have been trying to search down a quote, attributed to Mr W, for a while, about stride piano…something like…how James P did the chords, The Lion made it pretty, Duke created harmonies and Count picked the skeleton. Just a vague memory but I would like to get to the source. Any chances? Thanks so much for all of the great material about Dick Wellstood. I never got to hear him in a club — he was just a name credited in a recording played on the radio until I saw and heard these videos and read the comments of so many who loved him.
