Tal Cohen's Bookshelf: A Collection of Personal Opinions about Books
Book In-Jokes in...
Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces

 
Paul Halmos
(Springer, 1993)

(from “Math Words & Other Words”): “G. P. Hochschild worked with Halmos at the University of Chicago, and on hearing that Halmos was writing a book asked if his name would be in the book.”

And indeed, on page 198 we find the index entry:
Hochschild, G.P.     198
