Professor William H. (Bill) Sandholm, the Richard E. Stockwell Distinguished Chair in Economics and a longtime member of the department, died July 6, 2020.
A graduate of Dartmouth College and Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, Bill joined the UW-Madison Economics Department in 1998 and remained here throughout his distinguished career. Bill was known throughout the profession for the brilliance of his research as well as for his kindness, approachability, and support for younger scholars. He was a passionate teacher to undergraduates and graduate students; a beloved colleague and collaborator; a valued mentor to younger faculty; and a dedicated advisor to several cohorts of game theorists.
Colleagues knew Bill as “a genuine scientist; detail-oriented, open-minded, and uncompromising in the pursuit of truth,” “a humble scholar with an enormous love for research,” “an exceptional human being, generous with his time,” “kind and supportive to all, and a cherished mentor.”
This workshop is funded by the Juli Plant Grainger Institute (econ.wisc.edu/jpgi) for Economic Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
