William Ernest Hocking, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Harvard University, said of Professor Hugo Muensterberg's death:
"It will not be easy to estimate what Professor Muensterberg, during his long and fruitful service in this country, has done for psychological studies. He was one of the most productive of scholars and besides his wide resources of knowledge and invention, he had extraordinary gifts in presenting his thoughts so that many will remember him as a teacher of unusual fascination. Many an illustration of his would take root in the mind, giving life and vividness to thought of the highest subtlety. And beneath all this was a rare personal kindliness and hospitality. No differences of judgment in matters that are trying the souls of men in our day can obscure our sense of these services and those engaging human qualities." --Boston Post.
