Bowlby made clear his devotion to new generations of trainees: “Invitations from students’ societies always got priority since students are likely to be less committed to traditional ideas than their elders and, in any case, theirs is the future” (Bowlby, 1991a, p. 30). Domenico Di Ceglie (a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist who came from Italy and trained at the Tavistock some 10 years earlier than I) recently told me that Bowlby was inclusive and welcoming, with a contagious enthusiasm for teaching, which made him feel at home.

He was a caring and compassionate person throughout his life. In 1961, he set up a Benevolent Fund Committee at the British Psychoanalytical Society to help members who, through illness or ageing, had gotten into financial or other difficulties. The war years and beyond Bowlby was only seven when the First World War erupted. His father, Sir Anthony, was immediately sent off to the Front. Bowlby and his brother Tony An outline of John Bowlby’s pilgrimage 17 were later dispatched to boarding school because of the danger of air raids on London, they were told.

It seems likely that he might have suffered from post-traumatic stress. As a child, Sir Anthony had to endure a major traumatic experience. He was only five when his father (a journalist who covered the British–Chinese Opium War) was captured and tortured to death. As a young man, he decided to delay his marriage in order take care of his widowed mother until her death. A caring son and doctor, he was portrayed as a remote, intimidating, hard-working and formidable person. Despite being admired by his six children (three girls and three boys) he was often inaccessible to them.
