"Often, I remind myself, "How lucky I am to be alive!" At the age of ten I escaped the claws of the Nazis, arriving in the United States at the age of 12."

Arthur spent his formative years in Chicago where he received his B.A. in History from Roosevelt University. He later earned an M.A. in History at DePaul University, graduating as the only Magna Cum Laude. He also served in the US Army during World War II, experiencing the London Buzzbomb raids in 1944.

Arthur was a public school teacher for 27 years. History and German were his subjects. In 1975 he established Art's Realty. He resides in Piedmont, California. He is an avid theater and art aficionado, philanthropist and member of several non profit organizations.

Art started writing at the young age of 74 and has been writing ever since. He has published 15 poetry books to date.

"Arthur Weil's poetry illuminates all the possibilities of life, beautifully, in words that
take one by surprise. His insights and revelations give one a profound realization that
life is an incredibly rich experience to be savored each day, and that only the examined life is worth living." –Jerome Kirk
