Title introduciton
Description Introduction It is a privilege to be asked to introduce to you this year's Reynolds Lecturer: Chase N. Peterson, Vice President for Health Sciences here at the University of Utah, a post that he has held for the last 3H years. There seems to have been a certain amount of tension in his career with Massachussetts and Utah tugging him this way and that. Also there has been some creative restlessness that has taken him back and forth between medicine and Academic Born in Cache Valley, where his father was for 29 years president of Utah State University and educated there until age 16, he finished his high school education at Middlesex School in Concord, Massachussetts, a classic New England prep school devoted presumably to the honing down and the sharpening up of the inappropriate and suitable rough edges. From Middlesex onward his education included undergraduate years at Harvard with a degree in American Government and pre-medical studies and eventually an M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School. Such, of course, is only the beginning of a career in medicine. There followed internships and residencies in endocrinology and renal disease at the Yale-New Haven Medical Center, active duty in Germany as a Captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps., and finally, answering perhaps an inner urging toward a remembered glittering aspen against a dark blue sky he came in 1962 to practice medicine as a partner in the Salt Lake City Clinic. Harvard was, however, not willing to give him up and after 5 years in Utah he went back to his alma mater for 11 years first as Dean of Admissions and later as Vice President for Alumni Affairs and Development. My picture of the Peterson's in Cambridge is glamorized by the knowledge that they lived there in the house once occupied by William James. It wasn't until 1978 that he finally seemed to realize where he belonged, and came once again back to what to him is his home state but, surely, only a part of his kaleidescopic life. To his professions of physician, teacher, and administrator he brings a warm sense of humor, an incisive ability to cut through idle verbiage and hogwash in its many forms, a breadth of interests, an independence of thought and action, and physical toughness demonstrated in his having run in a marathon at St. George in 1979.
