Of Mel, Chairman of
the Board of Trustees of the Cosanti Foundation since 1977, Paolo
Soleri wrote: THE GENEROSITY OF HIS LIFE HAS PUT MEL IN THE ARISTOCRACY
OF THE DOING AND THINKING WORLD. IN THAT POSITION, A PRIVILEGE OF THE
FEW, HE HAS BEEN SURROUNDED BY AN HETEROGENEOUS AND LARGE NUMBER OF
FRIENDS. THE GAINS FOR US ALL HAVE BEEN PALPABLE. A SALUTE TO MEL IN
SADNESS AND IN GRATITUDE. [Photo: T]
