Meeting Fickett on the court

July 13, 2006

MY husband and I were thrilled to read the article on Edward H. Fickett ["L.A.'s Great Unknown," June 29].

My husband played tennis with him twice a week for more than 15 years. He was always a very modest individual regarding his architectural work. Ed was always a gentleman and had a great deal of inner self-confidence.

It was always a joke when he would purchase a dozen pairs of tennis shoes at one time while the rest of the men would purchase one pair at a time and hope to outlive that pair!

Your recognition of Ed's place in the architectural world was gratifying to us, and the articles brought back many fond memories.
