I just learned about Chris's death from the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. In the mid-1980s I was a new transplant to NYC at the CUNY Graduate Center and Chris not only taught me Modern Architecture but shepherded me through an unrelated minor in Baroque Architecture--just the two of us. He was so incredibly generous, so warm, such a ray of hope in that environment.
I asked him once before a presentation he was giving if he was nervous, and he told me, "If you aren't nervous, you're probably not any good." Those words have provided me great comfort through many years. He was a wonderful man whom I always presumed I would see again. I will sincerely miss him both as a friend and exemplar.
