Robin Williams' death in August 11, 2014 brought forth a flood of memories of his major contribution to the world of entertainment.
The following should be of interest to Burroughs fans.
THE BURROUGHS / ROBIN WILLIAMS / DR. OLIVER SACKS CONNECTION
In the film, Awakenings, Robin Williams played the famous neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks.
John Coleman Burroughs' second wife, Mary, told me that when John became very ill
and had great difficulty carrying on with his artwork they visited Dr. Sacks.
This was the doctor who made the diagnosis that John was suffering from Parkinson's Disease.
This was horrific news because John had seen the effects of the disease on his father
Edgar Rice Burroughs in his later years. Sadly, JCB's son Danton also inherited the disease.
