In the 1970s in Southfield, Michigan where Gary grew up, he began architectural school just months after injuring his spinal cord and becoming a wheelchair user.

Yet, he had to be carried up and down stairs every day at the inaccessible architecture building.

He successfully advocated for accessibility, and a ramp was added to the building — after five years!
