Jack visited one summer at UNC when I was very new to the profession. He was most gracious and expressed great interest in what I was doing. He was quite generous with his time and was seriously interested in anything in which I expressed interest. Over the years of our having had many summer visitors, I still regard him as one of the best with whom I crossed paths.
