Peter was a great man and a great professor. I recall being literally mesmerized during a lecture of his on German expressionist poetry. And a fine story-teller ... his description of post-war Vienna was unforgettable. He is truly missed. My thoughts are with you, Maggie and Katie.

When we were growing up on Fairmount Blvd, he was ready with his video camera to catch us at gocarts, lighting a Christmas tree, or hosting a neighborhood gathering. And on into young adulthood he was always there with kind counsel and comfort, or a story for a little one. He will always be remembered for his extraordinary kindness

Peter was well known as one of the leading scholars on campus. Thoughtful, considerate, genuinely cheerful and academically solid. It was a privilege to have known him.

Peter and family were my wonderful neighbors on Fairmount over 3 decades ago. I will always remember his intelligence, smile, and warmth. I also had the wonderful experience of spending a few days with Peter and family on Cape Cod. A true gentleman whom enhanced the lives of many students and friends.
