As others have noted, Professor Mandelstam's unique and engaging lecture style made a lasting impression on this then-young sophomore at MSU. His personality was so great that he managed to fill the spacious Wells Hall lecture room and drive the lesson home with wit and some Yiddish blended in. Those of us who had him teach is will never forget him or his lessons.

What? Al Mandelstamm is no longer with us? Oh, schlect!

I had the honor of setting up and playing the video tapes of Professor Mandelstamm in the Seventies. Evening shift at the campus closed TV studio. Lots of time to watch the class material. He was a brilliant stand-up who also happened to be an economist. Some of his phrases are still in my vocabulary: "No story today, kiddies!" "Friedmaniacs!" The list goes on. He's a loss to Economics, if only because he could take some of the pretension out of it.

I was so fortunate to have Handsome Al as my micro and macro economics professor while at Michigan State (1970). He was unequivocally a character and teacher that can not be forgotten. Rest in peace and forever remember no matter how schlect the world is a fine place

We were just discussing nodding off while doing tax returns, and I thought about my Econ professer back in 1971 who would sneak up on those who nodded off. So I decided to "Google him up" and found this.
I could have watched Professor Mandelstamm's lectures on closed circuit TV without leaving the warmth of my dorm, but we chose to walk the half mile through the Michigan winter, and get there early to be in the front rows. Forty three years ago, and memories of Handsome Al's lectures still lifts me up.
