I worked for Dr. tenBroek at his home on Shasta Road when I was an undergraduate philosophy student at Cal. I remember we would split wood together for their fireplace and when done, his woodpilw was alway neater and more compact than mine. One time after finishing an outdoor bench in their yard, he inspected it and pointed out to me how I could have made it better and stronger.
I continued working for his wife Hazel and the NFB for several years. What a great individual.
I did not study law but since that time I have had the occasion to be involved in some legal issues. I always remember his strength and dialectic method.
