Best wishes on your retirement. You have had a stellar first career -- I can't wait to hear what you will do in the forthcoming second one!

I remember one of the first things I learnt in psychology studies was about your experiments, and I was really happy to have been able to listen to your address last year in Singapore.

Best wishes for your retirement, although I believe that with your passion for psychology, you were never actually working.

You are an awesome individual who has made remarkable contributions to the field. Thank you for all you have done and all that you are! Wishing you all the best.

I wish you a happy, fulfilling retirement! Though we have not met, your work inspired me as an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan and was very influential in my decision to major in psychology. Now as an introductory psychology teacher, I tell students the story of how your work spoke to me and my goal that the material in our field will influence my students in a similar manner. Thank you very much for your time and dedication to our field.

All my best wishes for a retirement that will continue giving us your outstanding scientific papers and ideas.

I cannot forget when in 1987 you guested me for introducing to Ernest Hilgard at Stanford University.

I wish that I and my research group at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" continue our scientific relationship.

Tanti Abbracci,

Vilfredo De Pascalis

Dear Phil,

It has been a real pleasure to work with you, even peripherally.

I will always particularly remember your dancing the lot of us into the ground at the 2002 Spring Consolidated Meetings and your tremendous generosity in giving so much of your time and enthusiasm to present episodes of Discovering Psychology to APA staff. I hope you know how affirming staff found those sessions. Finally, I will always be proud to have on my bulletin board a polaroid of us taken at the APAGS booth at the 2001 APA Convention with me posing as Lucy and you as Charlie Brown.

All the best,

Paul Donnelly
