Harold was a kind and loyal friend of mine for over 30 years. As an academic he was 20 years ahead of his time. He was intellectually curious and loved data. I will miss Harold very much. We lost a great person who left a mark on the world. Jeffrey Pontiff

Harold was a very well respected member of the Terry College Finance Faculty. I loved how he took his work seriously but did not take himself seriously. He will be missed and long valued.

Dear charming friend, who loved the better things in life and never lost his sense of wonder. I'll miss you, your stories, your humor, and your generosity.

Dear Mulherin family, I was so sorry to hear the news about Harold. I have good memories of Harold from our BC/St. Vincent's high school days. For a couple of years during high school, Harold & I ran with the same circle of friends. I would often see Harold at weekend parties or at the BC Football games. Those were fun days! I moved away from Savannah after high school, but I would see Harold from time to time when I was at home in Savannah... mostly during the summer or over the holidays. Harlod was always a kind-hearted person with a smile on his face, and he was well liked by so many people. I know he will be missed. May Harold now rest in peace. Sending love & prayers, Julie Brennan Purkey

Professor Mulherin was my colleague and mentor for more than ten years. We worked on a number of projects together. I was always impressed with his curiosity and knowledge in the field. He was kind enough to guide me in my junior years. I am deeply saddened to hear his passing. May he rest in peace.

Learning only recently of Harold's passing, I still wanted to express condolences to his family and friends. He was a neighbor when I lived on Dearing Street. He had a distinct presence, and was well-respected, especially at UGA's Terry College. May he rest in peace.
