I met Professor Halper when she came to Harvard to work on women's issues there. I just came across this guest book entry opportunity and I want to say there are times when death truly becomes a miserable monster. This is one of those times. She was a human bring in the truest sense of the word. She lived with a cause and had all the tools to advance it. She was tough as nails and she was a beautiful soul. I will truly miss her and may she rest in peace.

I, too, am very sorry my condolences are over a year late. I had lost Louise's contact information and was looking for it because I wanted to seek her advice on some faculty development programming I am organizing. She was always generous with her assistance. It was then that I found this tragic news.

Her passing continues to reverberate and she is greatly missed.

I am sorry my condolences are coming a year later. I just found out about this very sad news because an e-mail to her bounced back. Although I have never met her, I have read her illuminating work and we were in e-mail correspondence. She is indeed a loss to the profession and to her friends and family.

As we roll into August all I can think of is Louise, the birthday parties at the dome in Ashfield. It's such a tragic loss, my family has always been so close to the Halpers, i can't believe shes really gone, now there is this unspoken thing thats missing, it's going to be a hard year but i am learning to just cry and know shes lived a great lovely life. She always believed that I could reach my goal of being an interior designer in New York! I will never forget our private talks about design and art, she was so proud of Aldo and I. She loved life and she will be greatly missed.

Dear Fred, Jake and Reuben,

Michael and I wish to extend our deepest condolences. Louise’s passing came as a great shock and is so very tragic. Because of the close friendship between our parents and Fred and Louise, we were fortunate to be a part her life. Some of our earliest memories involve us all together, the kids busy playing while the adults engaged in intellectual conversations. We were exposed to ideas of fairness and justice at an early age and have carried their influence with us into adulthood.

Louise’s commitment to our generation was inspirational. Speaking for myself, Louise was always there to support me. She always believed that I could reach my potential and achieve my dreams. I will never forget our private talks about the power of knowledge and how she would gently encourage me to find my way. As I approach my third year of law school, I can only hope that she knew how much I appreciate her. I have read the tributes from former students and it is clear that I am not the only one who is grateful for her mentorship.

Louise’s life and spirit will forever live in our memories. We will miss her very much.

Love,

Rebecca and Michael Donnarumma

We are writing to express a few of our thoughts about Louise and to extend our sincerest sympathies to Fred, Jake and Reuben.

When we first met Louise 40 years ago, we were immediately struck by her extraordinary intelligence. She seemed to read and know everything. Time and again we watched her turn discussions and meetings to the right path through the inescapable logic of her arguments. Equally impressive was her commitment to peace and equality, a commitment that never diminished. Our first conversations were about the folly of an American war in Vietnam; our last conversation was about the folly of an American war in Iraq. In between, we were privileged to work side by side with her in many political campaigns and struggles.

But Louise was also a dear friend for all those years. She was unbelievably kind and generous to us, from helping our daughter get into law school to inviting us to Thanksgiving dinner at her home when our relatives moved away. Over the years, we have met for dinner countless times. We would eat, drink, and talk for hours about our kids, our jobs, travel, politics, and the latest books we had read. We would laugh together at Fred’s stories, told with his inimitable timing and delivery. Many of our fondest memories are of time we spent with Louise and Fred. We loved Louise, and our lives will never be the same without her. We will miss her enormously.

Fred and family,
Our sympathy and prayers are with you.
