Dear Anders

Thank you for that tribute and interesting history particularly poignant on  Bill's birthday.

In my world picture, I felt that I had the privilege of seeing Category Theory, as a subject in its own right, come into being.

That reminds me, and perhaps I have mentioned this before?
Sammy Eilenberg told me once that each category theorist must have a special category on which they are expert.
I told that to John Gray who said: Ross, the time has come for that category to be Cat.
John's graduate course on category theory was based on that philosophy, heavily influenced by Bill's LaJolla paper.
