Had him 5 years ago and was a seriously sound man. Retired a in 2009 or 2010 ( I think) but continues supervising some study. A genuinely good guy, and witty and entertaining as well.
Interesting to listen to him talk,not just on his subject but on life in general.The dictionary definition of wise.

If you look at the copyright on his notes there from the 60's, never the less he's a hero because he never turs up for class "got to get some photocopying"

He punched me in the chest in 4th year for throwing eggs in his class. However we developed a respect for one another and he proved to be an excellent teacher.
