Kenneth Bernard was born on May 7, 1930, in Brooklyn to Otis Bernard and Mary Travaglini. His father was a businessman and writer of Christian-themed books. His mother, an independent-minded woman, invested in lychee groves in Florida.
When his parents divorced shortly after he was born, with the Depression in full force, his mother moved to Florida for a time, leaving him in the care of the American Female Guardian Society and Home for the Friendless. Later he was taken in by relatives in Framingham, Mass., before rejoining his mother in New York when he was about 12.
Dr. Bernard earned a bachelor’s degree in English at the City College of New York and, after serving in the Army from 1953 to 1955, did postgraduate work at Columbia University, where he earned a Ph.D. in English literature.
For every start of a journey, there must be an end. His journey has sadly come to an end on earth.
