      I had the privilege of knowing John Chase when I was at UT. He was a great man and you knew it when you were in his presence. These men and women pass through our lives and they are giants.

      Fantastic story. Mr. Chase is to be applauded. Just becoming an architect is difficult enough. Doing so in the face of adversity and the challenges of the period is a special accomplishment indeed. What a powerful personality.
