Patrick Huggins

Today I spent much of the morning writing remarks for the memorial that took place this afternoon for Patrick Huggins (NYU), who died at the beginning of this year after a challenging illness. Although what I said in the end had almost nothing to do with what I wrote, here's what I wrote. Huggins was enormously important to me as a mentor, as a colleague, and as a friend. He is and will be very sorely missed, by me and so many others.


  1. Touching remarks. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Having been away from NYU for a few years I'm just now learning of Professor Huggins' passing. He was a wonderful teacher and I feel very fortunate to have had him for Observational Astronomy. Thanks for posting.
