When I walked into The National Academy in New York City Fall of 1967, I had been casting about for a new career.  Formerly, I had been a magazine editor.  My youngest son was going off to college next year and I knew I would be facing an empty nest.  The sculpture studio was large and inviting, and the life model was a muscular male in a classical standing pose.  Exquisite!!!  When I left that day, I went out, bought tools and an armature, and returned five days a week for the next whole winter.  The instructor invited me to be a monitor.  For sweeping the floor and taking attendance I received free tuition.  Thank you, National Academy, for the great honor and for the head start.

That Spring I heard about an excellent sculptor from Russia who was giving lessons at The Sculptor Center on East 65th Street - Leonid Lerhman.
