Some of the best times in my life were at the Harrisburg Community Theatre. I was in thirteen shows directed by Pete and worked backstage and front of the house. My parents, Rose and Al, also participated in all aspects. And who could forget dear Fran, such a sweet lady, who helped at the theatre and became editor of the magazine Early American Life. I've thought about both of them over the years but never was able to meet up with them. Bless them for making that period of my life so wonderful!

During Peter's tenure at the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, I think it was 1979 or 1980, a few of us who were trying to establish an ensemble theatre company in the rural middle of the state, visited him in his Harrisburg office. I remember him standing up, his pipe dangling from his mouth, while he looked at the map of the Commonwealth, and asked, in his bemused way, "OK, now where is Bloomsburg?" Over the next years, he became a valued advisor and friend. He'd let me know when the work he saw at Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble was strong, and when it wasn't, and why. He was right. Usually. It was in the PCA's interest then to expand their impact beyond Philadelphia and Pittsburgh - looking back, I'm not sure what he saw in us in those early years, but I hope over time we earned the trust he placed in us. BTE exists, in part, because of that faith and guidance. In later years, after his time at the PCA, Peter would occasionally use me as an early reader for his writing. I'll never forget a drive he and Fran took me on through the Brandywine Valley, where I learned some deep detail about American Revolutionary history, as we discussed the apocalyptic novel he was working on. I hadn't seen Peter in some time, though we'd corresponded after Fran has passed away, but out of nowhere last week, I found myself thinking about Peter, and took "Schooner Master" off my shelf. I guess his generous spirit had stopped by to say farewell. Thank you, my friend.

I will never forget Pete's influence on my family's career in the arts. What a remarkable man! I saw him and Fran several years ago when they passed through Connecticut while Pete worked on an installment of his biography (I think it was a trilogy!). A kind and considerate man. He corresponded with me while I was in Vietnam.
