Students and Research Collaborators 
at UC Berkeley

My life, like George's, has been enriched by staying in touch with many of his former students, and I regret that some contacts have been lost over the years. This list doubtless contains errors and omissions, and I urge readers to send corrections to . The list is in two forms:
first, chronological, within categories of graduate student, post doc, and "other” (comprising undergraduates, master's degrees, and visiting scholars);
second, a single alphabetical list.   

In 2006 I started a listserv – an e-mail discussion group e-mail list where people who studied with George can post messages about him and about each other. It is a private group, limited to those listed below. If you did not receive an invitation to join, or would like to reconsider, please e-mail me at , or go to .

My greetings to you all. 

--Jeanne Pimentel
