  1. I had Prof. Grainger way back in 1986. Managerial Accounting – Econ 173 if I remember correctly? I think he was a still a visiting professor at that time? My friends are always impressed that I took a class from a Nobel Prize winner. He was a pretty cool kat back then. I am sorry to hear of his passing.

  2. Back in the mid-80’s I had the pleasure of taking a course from Professor Granger. I truthfully do not remember the name of the course or any specifics about what I studied but I do remember Professor Granger. He was so impressive as an instructor – knowledgable and approachable. Such a lovely man. I have always remembered him from my days as a UCSD undergrad.

  3. I was an undergraduate in Dr. Granger’s Business Forecasting class in the early 80’s. It was a intense course, but somehow he made it fun and understandable for a disinterested youth such as myself; so much so that I still remember him clearly nearly 30 years later. On the last day of class he joked something to the effect of: “If any of this forecasting stuff I have taught you over the last quarter could accurately predict the stock market, do you think I would actually be standing here teaching it to you!” We all laughed and took our memories of him. He is a great man.


  4. I had the pleasure of learning from Dr. Granger 24 years ago as an undergraduate. I have continued to follow the professors who had a profound effect on my learning, career and outlook on life, and Dr.Granger was always there. I was so pleased when he won awards and knew the Nobel would not change this gentle giant of a man. What a tremendous gift he was for UCSD, and an even more tremendous loss.

  5. I will always remember and appreciate Dr. Granger. I was an undergraduate at UCSD from 79 to 84. Dr. Granger was my advisor for my special project. In Management Science you had to have an advisor and a special semester long project for graduation. I remember sitting in his office and discussing it with him, spending time with him one on one, etc… He was a gentle, brilliant person, one of the nicest people I have ever met. After UCSD I went on to earn an MBA at Berkeley. I always rememberd his class, the project I did under him and the special person he was. I was so looking forward to seeing him again and we have lost a truly great person.

    Dr. Granger will always be in my thoughts.
