Thank you so much for your kindness. I'm deeply touched that fellow mechanicians think well enough of me and take the effort to nominate me for the award. What a great list of Prager Medalists! I'm humbled.

A while back Kyung-Suk Kim, in his usual way of telling unusual facts, pointed out that Hutchinson's students are linked--through Prager--to Gauss.  I quote again the conversation with Alan Needleman who was with Kyung-Suk and me and was also a student of Hutchinson.

“We are not disappointed in our ancestors,” I said.

“But they might be disappointed in us,” said Alan.

So Zhigang said, "We are not disappointed in our ancestors." Then Alan replied, "But they might be disappointed in us." 

Added here by Yanfei, "I'm highly proud of my immediate ancestor!"

I hope that your successors will also get the prize.
