Claus Egge was one of the first analysts I met, and one of the first I admired. Calm, analytical (it helps), Claus never needed to be highly vocal to impress. When he spoke, he spoke with quiet authority. While I never knew him outside the analyst circuit, I often had the pleasure of his company and, from time to time, the benefit of his advice. RIP, Claus. You will be missed by many.
