I can't call him "Harrison," as I knew him only as a lowly undergraduate and he will always be Professor Gough to me. He was the second reader on my honors thesis (the first was Jack Block) and he commented that while maybe the writer had some potential, he (me) had clearly not put very much work into the product. He definitely nailed the second part! He was always a kind and patient mentor -- including to undergrads -- and a model of civility in a sometimes rather crazy environment. I can't think of anybody I could compare him to -- a truly unique individual.
Harrison always had time to talk, advise, and tell an interesting and funny story. His warmth and intelligence were inspirational. Not only do I feel fortunate to have known him, I was lucky enough to work with him. His guidance and mentorship have been with me throughout my career. Harrison, you are missed.
Harrison was an amazing mentor, a wise friend, a tremendously compassionate human being, whose influence on so many of our lives was profound. I am very very sad, but grateful and forever changed by having him in my life.
I will always remember with awe and warmth Harrison's first meeting with my cohort of Personality students in 1985. He was genuinely pleased to meet us and treated us like long lost nephews and nieces.
My memories of HGG are alive: His integrity, wit, and intelligence marked my encounters with him. He was my dissertation chair and more than that he provided a role model for being a productive and creative human being. His relationship with his wife was cherished by him and we all remember how he said it was one career but two people. Kathryn we all admire you and want you to know that without you HGG would not have been the mentor he was to so many of us.
