For my nearest and dearest colleagues

Wendell S. Dietrich Ernest S. Frerichs Calvin Goldscheider Alan Zuckerman

My teachers, my companions

Better the honor of enjoying the friendship of these aristocrats of intellect and of heart than any honors the world has in its power to confer.

I glory in these colleagues, I take pride that mine is the merit of sharing career, profession, life itself with such as these.
