Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (R)
Ross, Donald

My grandfather was from Scotland.  His name was was David Ross and he immigrated to the USA.  His son and my father (Donald Ross) was quite an amazing man.  He helped design the heating and air conditioning systems of many of the famous New York buildings. The ones I know about are:  Madison Square Garden, the Twin Towers, Radio City Music Hall, and  the Chrysler Building at the World's Fair.  The Chrysler Building was built so well that Michelangelo's famous "Pieta" was able to be on display for the American people to see. We are distant relatives of the golf course architect Donald Ross.  My father was also one of the best golfers in Long Island.  I am sorry to say he is no longer with us.  This inspired me to tell people about him.  His redesignings of those New York buildings remain unchanged.  Unfortunately his overseeing of the construction placed him in contact with asbestos,  thus leading to his death..  Thank you for letting me tell you about my Scottish father.
