I took Professor Halko's Colonial Boston class as a humanities requirement. I did not realize that it was the first year of offering the class, 1976. Or, it might have been in 1977. To this day, it brings back fond memories when I recall his lectures. He truly was so animated and enthusiastic. I offer my sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

Henry is one of the reasons why I majored in American studies and why colonial American history is my favorite period of history and the area in which I work to this day. He had a wonderful sense of humor, an incisive teaching style, and his enthusiasm for his subject and for working with students will always be remembered. My condolences to the entire family, and may his memory, and that of his dear wife, Jane, always be for a blessing.
