  1. Larry,

    It is good to see that you are still doing research in algebra. I still recall, when I was chair and looking for a quality mathematician, my conversation with the Department Chair at the University of Virginia. He said you were an excellent and exceptional mathematician, and he highly recommended you as a candidate for a position at UMW. Among all of the faculty at UMW that I worked with, when it came to precision of presentation, I always said that if you wanted to take a class in mathematics, and you wanted a professsor that was consistently logical and precise, take a course taught by Larry Lehman. You are an exceptional person and a world class mathematician.
