Schaefer was a genius for picking the right people

During William Donald Schaefer's first term as mayor I served as the Evening Sun's reporter covering downtown, so I had an intimate view into many of the projects that Mayor Schaefer has been praised for.
There has been much written about these projects, but not much mention of what I consider to have been one of Mr. Schaefer's greatest skills: Picking talented people to implement them.
Just off the top of my head I can think of Bob Embry, Sandy and Bob Hillman, Mark Joseph, Bernie Berkowitz, Walter Sondheim and many, many others.
