One of the first names that came immediately to mind was Chris Achen. I remember reading his monograph, Intermediate Regression Analysis (Sage: 1982), at UofT, which, although dated, really helped me get a handle on the logic and math underpinning regression analysis. As well, although I'm sure there were others, at the time I thought he was one of the few "big names" in political science who was rallying against a certain methodological trend of "dumping" as many variables as one could into regression models and magically finding statistical significant relationships. And so I really wanted to meet him!
Happily, Chris accepted my invitation and his public talk and workshop were amazing.

An added bonus was that Chris was such a nice, humble, and encouraging guy. I made a lot of rookie mistakes during my first year at Laurier, including taking Chris to a bit of a "dumpy" bar instead of a fancy restaurant (darn budget!). But rather than complain, he happily had a beer and burger with the rest of us and told me he preferred the bar to the fancy restaurant (even though I'm sure that's not true)!
Even though I haven't spent very much time with Chris in person, I count him both as a giant and a mentor to me. His work and his visit to Laurier had a profound effect on how I have pursued my academic career so far.
