Jane Browne Petersen 1931-2003 Author:William O. Petersen Shortly after Jane's death, I thought about the course of her life which, geographically, had three centers: Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. In each, she built a structure of friendships with roots in her academic life, her profession and her activities within the community. She was also fully committed to family bases in Los Angeles as well ... more »as Chicago.
During the last days of her life, by visits, telephone calls and letters, friend after friend expressed his or her admiration of Jane based on her kindness, her integrity, the faith in people she always had offered, and where applicable, her professionalism.
I thought it would be a lasting memorial to Jane if I asked a few of her friends who could provide an outlook on portions of her life as well as her professional activity, to set down their thoughts on their participation in her life and their relationship to it. Their comments follow.
