No other teacher impressed me as much as Prof. Garrett. I loved the man and the professor. At first, he intimidated me so much (I was still struggling with my spoken English) that I avoided his class. Next quarter, at a final exam paper on third world countries, which he graced with an A+, he wrote: "This a beautifully written, deeply felt paper. It's a model graduate paper". 30 years later, I still keep that paper as well as fond, affectionate memories of an exceptional man. May he rest in peace.
