I was a graduate student in 1967 and Ben French was one of my first instructors, for a class I was barely prepared for. He helped me along in that quiet way of his. He was an honest, caring teacher that I have never forgotten.

As a Ph.D. candidate in Ben's class in 1985, I admired his depth of knowledge, his genuine caring about students, and his straightforward manner. He was a superlative teacher. To this day, I remember him fondly and pass on many of his lessons to the next generation of students.

Ben French was at the Agricultural Economics Department when I went was in the graduate program in the early 1970's. Everyone stood in awe of his intellect, leadership and kindness. He was a giant in our profession and wonderful man to work with. Jean Kinsey, St. Paul, MN

I joined the faculty in agricultural economics at UC Davis in 1984. Ben was one of the faculty members whose work I knew best from my days as a graduate student. It was a high honor to be on the faculty with him. He was a great mentor of graduate students and young faculty members. He cared greatly about the agricultural economics department at Davis and contributed much to it through his contributions as a teacher, researcher, and department chair. We will miss him greatly.

Ben French was my professor back in the early seventies. He was a major influence for all students for his academic contributions and dedication to the Department. I remember him well for his capacity to understand and guide the students and a fantastic quality of receiving and processing critics. He will survive in the memories of all his students.
