The Bennedsen collection also reveals how careful and meticulous a person Chris was. For more than twenty years, for example, he kept daily work notes. These journals are also filled with the daily ephemera of life: weather forecasts; how friends, family and colleagues were doing; occasional news of the day; and the activities that filled his evening hours.
Chris's home office was filled with his memories-photos, letters, plaques and awards, and all the other markers of his life. (Private Collection)
