H. Duane Anderson
Here’s my honored Pappy, at his desk in the Mission President’s office at 3, rue de Lota, Paris XVI. His central workplace, from June, 1967, through January, 1969. No other place, I think, so fully captures his mortal experience, from the pinnacle of achievement and joy to the valley of despair. But we get ahead of ourself.
