    Bill Hunter and Peter Scholtes

    Topic: Management Improvement

    I have recently updated Peter Scholtes' web site (author of the Team Handbook and the Leader's Handbook) and created a new web site for my father: Bill Hunter - williamghunter.net. They were friends and colleagues.

    I frequently receive kind words from people who knew my father. A recent note:

    I just thought I'd let you know how much I enjoyed your dad's class as a grad student in 1979 at UW-Madison. I'm sure you've heard many comments like this, but I'll add one more. He was a delightful and entertaining prof who clearly loved his subject. He made an impression on me one day by asking us a question about the British comedy radio program, The Goon Show, which I had heard. I think I was the only member of the class who raised his hand. After that moment, I always felt a special bond with him, because I thought it was great that he appreciated the wacky humor of that show.

    I received a wonderful education at UW and your dad was no small part of it.

    I have added a comments section on the site to post such notes. If you have a comment to share please send me a message to post. Even if only my relatives and I enjoy the notes, I think they are wonderful, so please send them in.
