Chase Peterson sadly passed away this week at the age of 84 after a complicated bout of pneumonia. He served as Senior Vice President of Health Sciences from 1978-1983 before being asked to serve as President of the University. By the time I got to know Chase he was transitioning into retirement from the University. This gave me the opportunity to know him and his remarkable wife, Grethe, in a way that I might not have had I met them earlier in his hectic career.
