For more than five decades from 1952, Dr Alf Hagger played a central role in economic research and development of the economics discipline at the University of Tasmania. Recognised as the economist most singly responsible for the advent of the post-war 'quantitative revolution' in Australian economists, Dr Hagger led pioneering research into the economics of inflation and regional general equilibrium modelling. Generations of students fondly remember him as a careful teacher, a research supervisor with uncompromising rigour, and a quiet but inspiring leader. Friends and family, former colleagues and students, and the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics have together raised funds to provide a scholarship at the University to encourage talented students of economics to pursue excellence in the discipline by studying at honours level.
