Abstract Chase N. Peterson (b. 1929) was born in Logan, Utah, to Elmer George Peterson and Phebe Nebeker. His grandparents on his father side were Gus Peterson and Agusta (Aggie) Steward Geddes, and his maternal grandparents were Hyrum Nebeker and Phebe Almira Hulme. His father attended Utah State Agricultural College and then went to the University of Chicago for his masters, and then on to Cornell for his PhD in Bacteriology. Chase was named after an uncle who died at one year of age from "winter disease." His father became president of Utah State University at the age of thirty-three, and Chase grew up in the president's home. He enjoyed mixing with classes, sports teams, the marching band, and the dairy. He learned to play tennis quite well. He spent his summers at the family ranch near Laketown, Utah, mostly working in the hay fields. He contracted polio while in medical school. Interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project.
