References in letters from Art’s cousin, Bob Weiss, Robert Schanke, Director of Camp Braemar, and Ted, a former classmate from Breck, confirms Art's attendance at Breck and that he participated in their military program. 

At one time Art attended the Talmud Taroh (time period unknown), a school for Jewish students, which was located in North Minneapolis where the Eisenbergs lived.
