Wednesday, we're remembering former University of Utah President Chase Peterson, who died Sunday at the age of 84. Dr. Peterson wrote a book he said was less memoir than it was stories of his "human and spiritual journey" from the American West to New England and home again. Chase Peterson was a scholar, a scientist, and a physician. Our conversation was about the moments that brought his life meaning. (Rebroadcast)
The funeral service for Dr. Chase Peterson will be Saturday, September 27th, 10:00 a.m. at the Monument Park North Stake House, 1320 Wasatch Drive, Salt Lake City.
This week on VideoWest, we're featuring a story Dr. Peterson told about the first artificial heart transplant. It's a love story. Watch it here.
