"What was really important
to me was that he was my men-
tor," MacKie-Mason said. "He
was my hero. He's been a father
figure for to me for 25 years. He
never abandoned me and corre-
sponded with me up until a few
weeks before his death."
University Librarian Paul
Courant, a long-time friend of
Gramlich's, described his profes-
sional interests of how econom-
ics related to public policy.
"I've been personally and pro-
fessionally close to Ned for 30
years, and yet when he died I was
blown away by the obituaries writ-
ten about Ned. They were talking
about a giant and a sage and here
I was mourning my friend," Cou-
rant said. "His style of work was
by turns empirical, theoretical,
comparative, methodological and
institutional. The unified theme of
the work is public policy."
Courant, growing emotional,
then paused for a moment to col-
lect himself.
"I'm sorry, I'm still not used to
it," Courant said quietly before
continuing his remarks.
The last two to speak were
Gramlich's children, Rob Gram-
lich and Sarah Howard, who
spoke together. They told stories
of how their father loved kids
and would never openly teach
them economics. Instead, Gram-
lich tried to teach them through
games and examples, like ana-
lyzing the fluctuating price of
scalped football tickets.
"He taught us indirectly, doing
things by taking a tax out of our
ice cream," Rob Gramlich said.
"Dad was a good teacher but
he didn't teach us through his
books," Howard said.
The audience was asked to
rise and sing along to a song
that reflected Gramlich's love of
baseball, "Take Me Out To The
Ball Game."
After the memorial, Howard
said she was surprised to see so
many people at the event.
"All his students just wor-
shipped him and I was like
'That's just Dad,'" Sarah said.
