Anatol Rapoport was one of the great

> systems and game theory is perhaps unmatched.
> On a personal note, I grew up in Chicago and my parents knew Anatol
> well. When I published a chapter on non-euclidean networks in Manfred
> Kochen's The Small World, my mother actually became deferential, because
> she noticed that the chapter that preceeded it was by Anatol. Also, he
> was a great pianist. My god parents who accomplished musicians were
> upset with Anatol because he decided to study at the University of
> Chicago rather than go to Europe and stuudy with Rachmaninov. At least
> that's the story they told.
