- David M. Goldenberg (born 1947) is a writer and an educator who was active at Dropsie College and the University of Pennsylvania. He was a neighbor of Joseph (Joe) Eyer (1944-2017), a scholar from Philadelphia whose research focused on social causes and health effects of stress. The two became friends and Eyer described Goldenberg as his "spokesman, mediator, and on occasion savior." This collection consists largely of copies of letters written by Eyer to a variety of people, and sent to Goldenberg. Some of these letters appear to have been written during times of personal crisis for Eyer and they are emotionally charged. In particular the copies of letters written to his father and brother are indicative of fraught relationships and internal conflict; but they also provide insight into his philosophies and academic interests.
