Arnold changed my life path. I was his only full-time undergraduate R.A. at Rutgers College 1966-1969, confederate in his aggression machine research, and later a Henry Rutgers Scholar under him my senior year. Then he wrote a recommendation to Marvin Zuckerman, and I was accepted to the University of Delaware's new Ph.D. program, which Marvin headed.
We would play tennis, he took me with him on some speaking engagements, had me over for dinner, Edith would attend my paper presentations after I was on UVA faculty. We emailed until about 2019 about this and that. He was a good guy.

I was a research assistant (69-70) to Arnold & I learned more about the nuts and bolts of research from Dr. Buss then I learned from any other professor, undergraduate or graduate school. Arnold sometimes had a gruff exterior but he always had a large and warm heart. On many occasions he came to my aid and I will never forget him or be able to thank him enough. I think of him often & the fun we had. We lost a good man. Murray Lerner, Ph.D.
