Like many executives running multibillion-dollar businesses, Peter Thompson adorns his office with photos of him meeting U.S. presidents. But there's one big difference: In some of them, he's a mere child.
A nephew of Richard M. Daley and grandson of Richard J. Daley, both longtime Chicago mayors, Thompson particularly remembers his encounter with President Gerald Ford. In a photo on his wall, Thompson and his younger brother, Patrick, wear identical leisure suits as they approach Ford to greet him on his visit to Chicago.
Look closely, and you can see that the brothers are mistakenly wearing each other's jackets, with Peter's too snug and Patrick's oversized.
