Maria Corpuz and her husband, John Hug, have been CAC docents for more than 20 years. Included in the many tours they give are walking tours of Hyde Park and Kenwood. Their own neighborhood, East Hyde Park, offers a wealth of great buildings and fascinating history but no dedicated tour—until this virtual stroll online. Corpuz is in pediatrics at UChicago Medicine and has walked to work daily for 40 years. Hug is retired from a career in finance and continues to teach at DePaul University.
