Emeritus Professor Warren Hogan, Professor of Economics in the University of Sydney, 1968-1998, and earlier, Professor and Dean in the University of Newcastle, has died following a short illness and period of hospitalisation. He was a distinguished contributor to academic economics for half a century, as well as being extensively involved in business and government throughout his career. He also undertook, over a long period, a wide range of energetic contributions to service organisations. I take the opportunity here to make some comments pertaining to the history of economics in particular, together with some personal reflections. (1) When Warren Hogan was approaching his sixty-fifth birthday in 1994 there were rumblings and speculation in the University of Sydney's Faculty of Economics as to whether the long-serving and distinguished Professor would 'finally' now retire--evidence enough that academic life rarely suffers from a scarcity of backbiting.
