I am saddened to learn, via the Temple alumni magazine, of the death of Dr. Hagis. He was my math professor in two courses in 1970 and 1971. He was a wonderful teacher and a very nice person. He was gracious in providing me with additional help in his office and also gave me copies of some of the articles he had published. In reading the obituary I learned that he was born on the very same day as my mother! He certainly was a class act.--Gary Schwartz, Class of 1971

Dr. Peter Hagis was my dissertation advisor at Temple University. I was aware of his work in number theory, and I wanted to study under him. I didn't know he was retiring the year I asked him to be my advisor, but he readily agreed. This wonderful man spent the first couple of years of his retirement coming in to the campus once a week to advise me! I had a fulfilling experience writing my dissertation, thanks to him. Upon earning my degree, I found a position in the Virgin Islands, where I have lived ever since. We kept in touch, and he shipped me many math books, which I still have and will always treasure. I always had the utmost respect for Dr. Hagis. He was first rate, all the way, as a number theorist and as a person.

Peter Hagis was one of the best people I ever met. He was initially the professor in a number theory class in my senior year at Temple. Later, when I joined the faculty, we became colleagues and friends. In that capacity, his wonderful daughter Joann was a student in one of my classes. His retirement address remains one of the warmest, funniest accounts I have ever heard about Temple University. We shared a love of Temple sports, especially basketball, for which we bought season tickets for many years. I will miss him!
