I am incredibly saddened at the passing of Bill Lawvere. In my first term
of graduate school in 1974, I found myself in Bill’s Algebra class and,
looking back, it was the single most fortuitous and defining moment in my
career. I was enthralled and captivated by a new view of mathematics,
learning, and scholarship that opened my eyes and would serve as a
fingerpost directing me towards my future path. Whatever modest successes I
may have had as a mathematician I owe to Bill’s teachings, example,  and
mentorship. Others will speak more astutely than I ever could to his many,
many contributions and accomplishments; what I will continue to cherish is
his kind friendship and also his unmatched generosity of spirit. As I now
reflect on Bill, what comes to mind is the definition of the word *mensch*
- a person of integrity and honor, of kindness and consideration, someone
to admire and emulate. Kimmo Rosenthal

Dear colleagues,

I met Bill only relatively recently at ct99 in Coimbra, so, for instance,  I
never saw him bringing up his political views in a public mathematical
discussion, but I have witnessed many times his generosity and efforts to
give deep and honest advice to colleagues of all ages, in that peculiar way
of his which was both self confident and yet devoid of arrogance.


He was also very patient. I have very fond memories of our conversations
during ct meetings, at the Bristol seminar he organized , at the México
workshops organized by Quico, and also in Arcadia with Fatima and Silvana.


Motivated by Bill’s interest on o-minimal structures we once attended an
important summer school on Model Theory. When the organizers realized Bill
was there they made a public announcement celebrating his presence and
invited him to chair a session.


We Category Theorists were indeed privileged  to share an epoch, or part of
one, with Bill’s profound intellect.


His results will influence our subject for many years. Still, I would like
to encourage younger generations to continue studying his work, including
his messages to this list, where they will find a treasure of remarkable
brightness, full of  fascinating ideas still to be pursued.


Yours,


Matías
