      Dr. Edgar Berman was In Africa with Schweitzer as a member of the venerated doctor's surgical team in Lambarene. There, he was about to delve into Schweitzer's psyche, his personality, his rationale. He would ask and answer: why would a world famous physician maroon himself in the jungles of Africa: Why would an intellectual with doctorates in four disciplines choose a primitive, isolated life?

Schweitzer's hospital is not on the island but on the river bank about a mile or so away. Schweitzer always referred to the town as "le Grand Village", and he was generally known as "Le Grand Docteur".
