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
