Interesting piece in the SUN a while back (coincidentally the day the discussion board broke down). For those who may have missed it, here is the text version.

Gould may have had autism
Picture Of: Canadian Press files / AUTISTIC? Canadian pianist Glenn
Gould relaxes during practice for one of his early performances in
the late 1950s. Gould may have suffered from a mild form of autism.
OTTAWA — Glenn Gould may have suffered from a mild form of autism,
the keeper of the Gould archives says. The theory may explain both
the pianist's musical genius and his eccentricities, which included
an overfondness for scrambled eggs and an aversion to shaking hands.
Timothy Maloney, a musicologist and director of the music division
of the National Library of Canada, has worked for two years on a
paper contending that the late virtuoso had a neurological disorder
characterized by social deficiency, obsessiveness and intolerance of
Maloney sees Gould's retirement from the concert stage at 31 as an
effort to cope with the condition, Asperger's syndrome. "Every new
hall, every new piano and every new person was extremely stressful
to Gould," Maloney said in an interview at the National Library in
Ottawa. "As he grew older, he needed to be at a remove from society.
This is an arch example of an Asperger's sufferer."
Maloney cites Gould's reclusiveness, obsessive work habits,
prodigious memory, even his strict diet of scrambled eggs and
arrowroot biscuits, as symptoms of the disorder.
In Gould's time, many reviewers expressed irritation at his humming,
rocking at the keyboard and conducting the orchestra when either
hand was momentarily free. According to Maloney, "Gould could no
more control such mannerisms than play the violin. They ruled him,
not he them."
Asperger's syndrome was named for Viennese doctor Hans Asperger, who
published a paper in 1944 describing a pattern of behaviour in young
boys. Although they demonstrated normal language and intelligence
levels, they had deficiencies resembling autism in social and
communication skills.February 22, 2000 at 6:07 am #5760

Apologies from the FEAT BC Discussion Board
Dear Feat BC Discussion Board Members:
We would like to apologize to for the unintentional e-mail messages you received today from the board. They were inadvertently transmitted during our work to repair the board.
The FEAT BC Discussion Board service provider was recently acquired by another company. The *migration* to the new server damaged the discussion board. We are working hard to make repairs and expect to have the board up and running again soon.
Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience.
Isaac Tamir (Mikis Dad)
