Part 1, Chapter 7 Summary

No one seems to care that Cameron has retired. The newspaper devotes little space to it and misspells his buildings' names. Peter asks Francon to hire Roark. While Roark accepts the job, he refuses to design, avoiding Peter's questions about his seemingly hostile attitude. Roark dislikes his work because he wants to fulfill the buildings' promise. Peter, who takes some pleasure in ordering Roark around, still secretly seeks both Roark's approval and advice, realizing that Roark has true talent. On a visit to a building site, Roark sees that an electrician is making a mistake and corrects him. The electrician doesn't listen to him because he hates architects, expecting them to be incompetent. Roark takes over, fixing the error, and the electrician is surprised but pleased. The electrician's name is Mike, and he and Roark become friends. Both men have worked with Cameron.
