    Hale Trotter was my senior thesis advisor and he was kind, careful and connected to my research. We explored a strange corner of algebra and mechanisms. It was a great journey. I’m so sorry to hear he’s gone, but at 91 he had a wonderful career full of as much mathematical adventure as a man can squeeze from the world.

    I am so sad to hear of Hale’s passing — I was quite fond of him. He was my PhD thesis advisor and helped me through some very difficult times. He was a truly good man and a brilliant mathematician, and a fantastic advisor and teacher. He was also very funny. May his memory be for a blessing.

    Trotter, who taught me linear algebra when I was an undergraduate at Princeton, was a genial source of information and encouragement in subsequent years, as I pursued my amateur interest in knot theory. Let us all celebrate his long and happy life.
