Morlan Lewis hired me for my first professional job at Arthur Young & Co. I was 24 years old and a recent graduate of Stanford Business School. I was impressed by his intelligence and breadth of background. Had I not stumbled on this job opening in Portland, my life would have taken a completely different turn since I had job offers in California. I hadn't spoken to him in more than 20 years, but I would have liked to continue a professional dialogue. I was very sorry to see this obit.
