Honohan, Patrick; Neary, J. Peter. 'W. M. Gorman (1923–2003)'. - Economic & Social Review, Vol. 34, No. 2, Summer/Autumn, 2003, pp. 195-209, Dublin: Economic & Social Research Institute
William Moore Gorman, known to all as Terence, died in Oxford on 12 January 2003. The greatest Irish economist since Edgeworth, he was, like Edgeworth, totally unknown to the general public, both in his native country and in Britain where he made his career. He was the purest of pure
theorists, whose life was devoted to scholarship and teaching, and whose work
of forbidding technical difficulty was incomprehensible to most of his contemporaries. Yet, paradoxically, he was always concerned with applied issues, and the tools and theorems he developed have had a lasting influence on empirical work.
