Honoring Dr. Tony Curtis, First Contributor to Pikler/Lóczy USA

Tony visiting the Pikler Institute in Budapest in 2003.

Today, September 29, we honor Dr. Tony Curtis on the anniversary of his passing.

Dr. Curtis was our first contributor to Pikler/Lóczy USA, He reached out to us in 2003 to see what he could do to help the Pikler® Institute. Both his daughters, Jamie Lee and Alexandra (founding board member of PLUSA), had told him about Pikler because they had been greatly influenced by the Pikler® Approach, as well as by Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE®). He wanted to help in some way because his daughters were so passionate about this way of caring for infants and toddlers.
Dr. Curtis visited the Pikler® Institute in Budapest in 2003 and was the honorary chairman at a charity gala, “An Evening With Tony Curtis” at the Urania National Cinema. He helped significantly in raising $10,000 for the Pikler® Institute through this event. Read more in our 2004 newsletter…
