The biography of Harold J. Schaller, written by his daughter, Karen J. Hampton, tells the story of this talented man’s long life and career from both an intimate and professional perspective. Mr. Schaller was considered by many to be one of America’s foremost Designer-Memorialists. The book is enhanced by historical photographs, excerpts of interviews, and examples of his art.  Hampton’s personal remembrances illuminate a vibrantly creative, sensitive mind at work behind the scenes of some of our most enduring public and private legacies.

..."The book kept me up until 1 AM. A wonderful memory of an extraordinary man."...Doris Tusty, friend of the Schaller family.

..."Your book did a world of good for me in terms of putting into perspective my father's life and his accomplishments. I have recommended your book to others."...Patricia Dimond, colleague of the author.

..."Karen's portrait of Hal has all the integrity and love of Hal himself...even readers who never knew Hal want to read on to learn more about such a remarkable man."...Marge Moore, neighbor of the Schaller family.

..."The book is beautifully written and contains sensational photos of Hal's artwork, memorials, and a photo of the stained-glass window in our church."...Leigh Pezet, pastor Our Redeemer Lutheran Church.
