HOWARD SPECTOR

HE WAS VISITING INSTRUCTOR @ CU IN THE MID-60S...HE WAS THE MOST FUN TEACHER WE HAD. HE ORGANIZED BROWN BAG LUNCH SEMINARS, INVITED CREATIVE THINKERS OF ALL DISCIPLINES TO INTERACT WITH STUDENTS.

MY FIRST JOB WAS AT HIS OFFICE. I'M AFRAID I DIDN'T DO TOO WELL; NO RELFECTION ON HIM...HE WAS GREAT. I REMEMBER HE DESIGNED A HILLSIDE HOME FOR A LOCAL BOULDERITE; WHILE UNDER CONSTRUCTION, THE BUILDER BROKE A CITY WATER MAIN.

THE BUILDER (EXCAVATOR)WAS REAL PROUD, THOUGH...HE MOVED BOULDERS AROUND, CREATED A WATERFALL HE THOUGHT CHUCK WOULD BE "REAL PROUD OF".

I REMEMBER MR. HEARTLING DID MANY CHURCHES...TOLD ME IT WAS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR THE ARCHITECT TO PLAY GOD.

WHEN I WORKED FOR HIM, HIS KIDS WERE VERY YOUNG. I THINK HE WAS IN HIS 40S. IT WAS WHEN HE RAN AND WAS ELECTED TO THE BOULDER CITY COUNCIL.
