From Irv Cockriel
In Support of Charles Tandy

Dr. Charles Tandy has requested a letter of recommendation in his behalf and I am pleased to respond. I became his major advisor when his former doctoral advisor took a position at another university. I was involved with Dr. Tandy from the proposal stage forward through his graduation (Ph.D.) in August 1993.

Dr. Tandy is a very bright creative person with unlimited potential. He has very good writing skills and is not afraid of hard work and has the tenacity to see a task to completion.

He is an excellent conversationalist and I really enjoyed working with him. He is a quick study and grasps concepts thoroughly.

His recent international experiences will only intensify his zeal for teaching and learning. I fully expect him to publish a major work that will be widely recognized. He seems to have outstanding talent in so many domains.
