"Louis, with fond memories of
my many visits on Wall Street Week , and with all best wishes,
your longtime friend, John Templeton."
Sir John Templeton, The Templeton
"He took what had been on the back
pages of the newspapers for decades and put it on the front page. He made
it accessible to people who had formerly been a little fearful of it. He
made it approachable. He made it understandable."
||"Lou arrived as a breath of fresh
air when he hit the American investment scene 35 years ago. Erudite,
suave, with a devastating sense of humor, Lou stands as an icon in TV
broadcasting. This towering figure in the exceedingly tough and rough
business of TV journalism will be remembered for another half century, and
hopefully far longer as students of the trade study his TV performances
spanning a third of a century. Lou, it has been a rare privilege to know
you also as a warm, gracious host...but above all as an extraordinary
Charles Allmon, Growth Stock
"I grew up watching Louis every Friday evening. He represented the needs
and interests of the individual investor like no other commentator. He was in
fact an educator on the subject of investing and the markets. He
brought an unforgettable sense of style and humor to the subject and possessed a
unique way of taking what seemed to many individuals as a
mysterious and complicated world and putting it into a context that all could understand.
I miss him and his weekly broadcast. Friday evening is just
not the same."
George Gulla, Standard & Poor's
"I owe a great deal to Lou. He
picked me as a panelist and allowed me to enjoy 11 years on his show.
Being associated with the greatest financial journalist of our time was an
honor and privilege. Thanks and all the best Lou."

|| "For those of us who grew up B.L.
(before Lou) during the first generation of public access to the
formerly-closed world of the stock market, Lou was our seer and
questioner, our charming guide, our trusted source. A real
journalist, he spread knowledge of investing to people who were
intimidated and bamboozled by brokers and fund managers in the period

"Wall $treet Week accomplished what no other TV
show has ever done: weekly, it brought millions together to listen to
the kind of discussion of investment information to which every American
should be exposed. Imagine the impact on the next generation. It was the
presence of Louis Rukeyser that made that happen. Without his
gentle, prodding interviews, millions would have missed learning
about our financial markets from a well-informed father figure. I want to thank
Louis for being such a wonderful role
