Students and Research Collaborators 
at UC Berkeley

This list doubtless contains errors and omissions, and I urge readers to send corrections to My life, like George's, is enriched by continuing contact with many of these people, and I regret contacts that have been lost. The list is in two forms: the first, chronological , within categories of graduate student, post doc, and "other"comprising undergraduates, master's degrees, and visiting scholars; the second, a single alphabetical list.

In 2006 I started a listserv-an e-mail discussion group e-mail list where people who studied with George can post messages about him and about each other. It is a private group, limited to those listed below. If you did not receive an invitation to join, or would like to reconsider, please e-mail me at , or go to .

My greetings to you all.
