I didn’t know William Dember, but apparently, he was my cousin. He was my grandmother’s first cousin – her mother’s brother’s son – which makes him my …uh …cousin. A few times removed, probably.
Anyway, it turns out he was a fairly decorated man in the field of psychology. In truth, I didn’t even know he existed until he died, so it really makes me wonder how much family I have running around out there that I have never even heard of.
