In 1966, Lew gave me my first law job and taught me much. I think about him often. "

Lew and I attended Harris School between Clark Street and Lincoln Park in the early and middle 1940s. He was a couple of years older. I was fascinated by his steady and cool demeanor especially when he played guard on our basketball team. Although we had a very small squad with few good players, but his ability to create plays still sticks in my mind. He was not a big man, quite slender with narrow hips, but his broad shoulders and commanding presence made a permanent impression on my young mind..

My peak memory was his ability calmly hold the ball, fake it back and forth until the opposing player made his move. Then like a flash Lew would drive to the basket and make two points as the defenders stood flat-footed. Although I have not followed Lew's illustrious career I can only imagine that his ability to control the game of basketball stood him in good stead in the game of business and philantropy.

I first met Lew early in my career when I was President of the Landmarks Preservation Council, advocating for the preservation of landmarks in the North Loop Redevelopment. He was head of a larger coalition of civic organizations that sought a voice in the redevelopment. Lew taught me the stakeholders, how decisions were made and how to have an impact on those decisions. It was a lesson that has served me well throughout my career. I am so grateful for his guidance.
