bewildered from Minnesota, I wanted to be as near to the Art Students
League as I could. Just one block to the east of the League was
this famous old artists' studio building, where I was able to
lease the second floor of a duplex apartment occupied by the film
and Broadway actor Jose Ferrer. When Elizabeth and I were married,
we dared to take one of the fabulous duplex apartments (11B-12B).
The double-height studio was perfect for classes and demonstrations.
