Ten Chicagoans master the art of growing older

image: "Coming of Age" headlineThe men and women featured in these interviews are lifelong Chicagoans in two significant ways. They are alumni of the University, and they have spent most of their 90--plus years living and working in the city of Chicago. Approaching their own century marks, they sat down with the Magazine to talk about what has mattered most.
