    I created Alex Heller at Jim’s suggestion. It is very stubby and could have a lot more added.

    How about a link to

    http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=4773
    I'd do it if I knew how.

    Tim, Heller’s name appears in model structure and simplicial presheaves and related entries. Maybe you have time to add cross-links? I can’t right now.

    I started to do this but then paused in the task. I will try to do it soon.

    Any ideas on dates (or at least years) of birth and death?

    None. I think death in 2008, judging from Notices AMS, but so far have not tracked down an obit.

    I think I have linked to all the main entries that mention Alex. I have also updated the entry on him.

    Ronnie, Jim, myself and Alex’s ex-student Yoson together with others who knew Alex, combined to prepare (mostly done by Yoson) a short notice on Alex’s life and achievements. I have included as a file at Alex Heller. There was no Wikipedia nor St. Andrews page on him, yet for the stuff we talk about he was someone who made a considerable contribution. I hope to have a complete list of his papers soon, which I will attach in the same way.

    Peter Freyd has some personal reminicences of interaction with Alex
    which I'm trying to get him to typeset. Anyone else care to contribute?

    I forgot to check. I was confusing the initial of his family name with his first name! Silly, Doh! Thanks.
