It is my unhappy duty to inform you all of the passing of Hartley Rogers 
Jr. Hartley died Friday morning after a long illness.  He was comfortable 
and at peace, and we, his family, were with him.

Hartley was an important figure in the department and at MIT.  He was a 
student of Alonzo Church working in Recursion Theory.  His book Theory of 
recursive functions and effective computability” is a classic.  Please 
take a look at his biography at the site below to get a little feeling of 
the large impact he has had here at MIT.


I will pass on information regard memorials and was you can honor 
Hartley'’s memory if you wish at a later time.


Tomasz S. Mrowka
Head of the Department
Singer Professor of Mathematics MIT
