    1. Don s stories are just wonderful, including his journey from Eastern Pennsylvania to and through Yale s School of Architecture What is unique and special is how Don remains true to his philosophy and values, shedding the spoils that have entraped some of his highly successful classmates.Well written, and the tales are very well told Names changed to protect the guilty.
