In the spring of 2011, I bought a copy of my teacher Elise Paschen’s poetry Infidelities from a used book store at Lakeview, Chicago. The title page of the book has Elise’s autograph and a note says, “For Kitty & Harry, Abiding presences throughout a childhood on Scott Street! All my love, Elise 10/18/96”. Later, Elise told me that copy was for a renowned Chicago based architect Harry Weese (1915-1998) and his wife. In Chicago, one of the famous edifices he designed is the Time & Life Building at the Near North Side, a few blocks from that used book store. Elise’s father Henry D. Paschen is also a Chicago builder.
