Abstract/ Summary

Stephen Resnick’s mentorship, teaching, and research profoundly influenced several generations of students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. When he died at the beginning of 2013, many students who had taken his classes and several who were working on dissertations under his guidance were still enrolled in the doctoral program in economics. These are the reflections of the last generation of students to work directly with Steve, as shared at the memorial service held on campus.
