He also wrote two science fiction novels. His sons are former United States Attorney General William Barr and physicist Stephen Barr. Early life and education Barr was born in Manhattan, New York, the son of Estelle (née DeYoung), a psychologist, and Pelham Barr, an economist. He and his wife, Mary Margaret (née Ahern), had four children including William P. Barr (who served as the 77th U.S. Attorney General in the George H. W. Bush Administration and as the 85th U.S. Attorney General in the Donald Trump Administration) and particle physicist Stephen Barr. He was born to a Jewish family, but later converted to Catholicism.
