After a long period in business in Sweden, I have taken my Masters in Art History at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium. I have collaborated as the expert on Swedish alterpieces in the book (coming out in December 2004) Retables Bruxellois conservés en Étranger, edited by Brigitte d'Hainaut-Zveny. My thesis, The Alterpieces of Aspö- and Härad Churches, Sweden: Flemish and German Influences, was published (in French) in the ULB art journal, Les Annales, in June 2004.

Rudolph (Rob) Houck
Through the help of a Plan II professor Robert Cushing I got a full scholarship to the University of Chicago Law School, so it was actually cheaper than Plan II. I graduated in 1972, having married Anne Payne, a fellow UT graduate. I practiced law in Pittsburgh until another opportunity for a free education came along. I spent a year at the University of Frankfurt and then a year at Georgetown Law Center where I got an LL.M. in 1981. While in Frankfurt I practiced law with two of the leading law firms there and we still count many of our friends there among our closest. On return to the "real" world I began advising German businesses in the United States and continue to do so with Alston + Bird. I am a member of several US-German organizations and am frequently in Germany. Anne (BFA '69) is a family therapist in New Canaan and our one child, Liz, is a health care consultant in Brooklyn. We've lived in Mt. Kisco, New York since 1982
