HE SET UP his Lansing law practice, specializing in defense work in negligence cases, in 1952. That 'was "cold turkey", with no secretary and a pack of throw-away furniture; , Through it all, art remained his great passion an. affair that has continued to grow. Joseph insists he became a lawyer in the first place because -he loves to read " - - . . . i - HE HAS BEEN president of the Lansing Symphony Association and has been a board member of the organization for 12 years. His involvement on cultural boards includes such organizations as the Opera Company of Greater. Lansing, the Lansing Ballet Association, the Lansing Art Gallery, and the Society of the Friends of the Chicago Art Museum. He founded the Society of Friends of Detroit's Institute of Art. If that isn't enough, Joseph is also a member of - the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the -Friends of the Kresge Art Gallery. TODAY, Joseph owns over 6,000 books on art history and his home contains a classical music li- brary and many paintings by local artists. He's also writing an art book a dialogue be- . tween laymen on the essence of art, the need for art and how appreciation can be enhanced. FOR JOSEPH, art is a nutrient. "It's so pervasive," he says, "that we don't even always know we're loving it or enjoying it. In the course of the day we make more esthetic judgments than non-esthetic judgments. Those decisions are made inside ourselves and are the essence of the human spirit." AMERICANS ARE coming around to a greater ' funding of the arts, he grants, but Europe is still far aheadV'In a European town of 30,000 they have opera houses the way we have fire stations.", v Still, Joseph is highly optimistic about the state of the arts in the U.S. "America is playing catch-up -ball and doing a beautiful job of it." Somehow it all comes back to love again." Art," he says with conviction,, "really increases our. ca- . pacity to love others more." .
