I met Harry and Peter in the very early months of coeducation. Maybe it was in Norma Brustein’s acting class for undergraduates where we and several other classmates were dubbed her Wunderkinder. The Wunderkinder proceeded to make an indelible mark on undergraduate theatre at Yale in those years. Harry and Peter came to Yale together from Andover with a passion for theatre. Harry’s facility with languages lead to a transcript major in French but an official major in musical theatre. Peter was an actor’s actor and Cole Porter fan. After Yale, theatre remained their lifeblood – Harry in producing and directing; Peter in acting. They are great friends. The kind of friends one continues to chat with, consult with, share a laugh and a cry with. They would have been great uncles to my daughter who is showing her own musical and theatrical gifts.  When we got a new puppy in the fall there was great debate over what to name him. Our new puppy is Harry.
