Abstract

With the premature passing of Laurence Moss, the field of history of economic thought has lost one of its great practitioners and mentors. Larry was not only an outstanding scholar in the field in his own right, but in his capacity as an officer in HES and as an editor of the AJES, he was a mentor to my generation of scholars entering the field. Put simply, Larry was a generous man who sought out and encouraged young scholars in economics to think seriously about the history and methodology of the discipline.

Keywords: Larry Moss, History of Economic Thought
