I just learned with great sadness of the tragic passing of a beloved professor. I was an economics student at Michigan in the mid 1970's. There I had the opportunity to take statistics and macroeconomics from two very famous professors. On both occasions, my friend and classmate Beth Hayes recommended Dr. Howrey, her favorite professor, as the better choice and she was right. I so admired Dr. Howrey that after consulting with him, I went to Chapel Hill where, as he had done, I received my Ph.D. in Economics. Beth went on to become a path-breaking economist, but was killed under remarkably similar circumstances in June, 1984. Now, I shall never remember one of those wonderful people without also remembering the other.

Phil was a friend and collegue during several years of graduate school at Chapel Hill. A mutual friend once remarked that units of enthusiasm should be defined as "Howreys". A judgement with which I most certainly agree. I'm sure that there are now many more of his friends who would also agree.

A brilliant professor of econometrics, from whom I took both undergraduate and graduate course, and a kind, welcoming man. I am greatly saddened to learn of his passing.

I just learned of Phil's passing yesterday and am sorry to hear it. I took one of Dr. Howrey's undergraduate courses at U/M and was impressed by his ability to make statistics into an interesting subject, much of which was due to his fun and engaging teaching. I am sorry hear about the accident and wanted to share my memory, so that you might know that for all the thousands of people who knew him well there are tens of thousands who knew him a little and liked him because of it.

I just learned of Phil's passing in the tragic accident. Phil and I were ATO Fraternity brothers at Drake. He was a campus leader (President of the Student Body) and a track star. And he was one of the brightest fellows I met at Drake. And therefore was not surprised to read of his many academic accomplishment. After Drake I went on to receive an MA in Journalism at Michigan State. So I am sure he and I would have enjoyed the rivilary between
U of M and MSU. So sorry for your loss. Jim Ellerbrake - San Francisco, CA and Carmel, CA
