I got a chance to know him a little in 2000 when I was lucky enough to attend his intensive summer workshop. Amazing guy. Lessons learned in that week live on. Thank you Milton!

I flew into New York for the first time late Friday night in 1976 and called Mr. Glazer's office that day. He was working late and answered the phone and said, 'come on up.' He looked at my portfolio and say I was welcomed into his class. With gratitude and tears I thank you and may God Bless you, dear Sir.
