John Leighton Chase was a fantastic character and dear friend to many. He also worked below the radar to make a profound impact on West Hollywood, where he was urban designer. John died suddenly last week at the age of 57. Frances Anderton remembers him with Ann McIntosh of the City of West Hollywood; Richard Loring, developer; Alan Hess, architecture historian; Margaret Crawford, professor of architecture. Also, we get under the surface of Mad Men's costumes with Emmy-nominated costume designer Janie Bryant.
