Words cannot express my feelings today after hearing of Hallie's passing. The mere fact that I always thought of him as "Hallie" and not Dr or Prof Hamilton speaks volumes! I was a member of his first photography class in 1961, and I knew immediately that this guy was special. I admired his toughness in my pursuit of that perfect shot..."Come on, Hallie, only a B+!" But, I learned so much from him, not only about photography, but about life and how to be a good teacher AND a good friend at the same time. I patterned my future after Hallie's style and taught for 20 years emulating him every step of the way. I am sure Hallie touched others the same way he touched me. I can't imagine this world without Hallie...I loved him, respected him and will miss him terribly. Love to Floann, Dick Nelson '61

Hallie Hamilton was a remarkable person and instructor. He taught me how to take good photos and how to write feature stories. Both skills I have put to good use during my career. He will be long remembered and appreciated by those of us who were fortunate to know him as a friend and teacher.

Words cannot describe the pleasant memories from NIU grad school, due to Dr. Hallie Hamilton. My sympathies to all his family, friends, students and co-workers who are thinking of him--especially at this sad (for us) time. "THANK YOU, Hallie for all your wisdom; I still utilize many skills learned from you at the age of 55.5+." (NIU '83)

RIP Hallie Hamilton. You had such a huge impact on me and many, many others through your teaching and your example. Thirty plus years later I still use things you taught me. I've recently returned to doing some photography and think of you often. I just wish you had a pipe with you in the picture here.
