His military service enabled him to meet surgeons and physicians from throughout the United States and to exchange ideas and plans for postwar institutions. He was appointed Director of Surgical Research for the U. In Houston, he started work with 22 employees in the house and stables cum carriage-house of a donated family estate. The stables housed research laboratories for biochemistry and biology.
Clark located surplus Army barracks, had them moved to the estate grounds, and converted them to a clinic. During this time, employees, including some ex-military associates, were recruited to expand M. Anderson Hospital. Clark was when discussing salaries, benefits, laboratory space, and other necessities. The M. Anderson Foundation was also a benefactor.
At that time, the Texas Medical Center was expanding and M. Anderson Hospital became one of its cornerstones. They had two children, Randolph Lee and Rabia Lynn.

He returned to Cambridge after the war and graduated in but, perhaps because of his interrupted studies, he only obtained a Second Class degree in Natural Sciences.
During his studies at Cambridge he married Elaine Charlton of Keswick in However Niels Bohr gave a lecture course in Cambridge in and Hartree was much influenced, working on applications of numerical methods for integrating differential equations to calculate atomic wave functions.
In his inaugural address on his appointment to the chair in Cambridge in he said Lewis Campbell was a close friend of Maxwell's and he wrote the biography [',' L Campbell and W Garnett, The life of James Clerk Maxwell with selections from his correspondence and occasional writings London, Maxwell went to Peterhouse Cambridge in October but moved to Trinity where he believed that it was easier to obtain a fellowship.
The First Wrangler in that year was Edward Routh, who as well as being an excellent mathematician was a genius at mastering the cramming methods required to succeed in the Cambridge Tripos of that time. Maxwell remained at Cambridge where he took pupils, then was awarded a Fellowship by Trinity to continue work. His paper On Faraday's lines of force was read to the Cambridge Philosophical Society in two parts, and On 3 April his father died and, shortly after, Maxwell returned to Cambridge as he had planned.
He made periodic trips to Cambridge and, rather reluctantly, accepted an offer from Cambridge to be the first Cavendish Professor of Physics in Fleming attended Maxwell's last lecture course at Cambridge. On 8 October he returned with his wife to Cambridge but, by this time he could scarcely walk. Colson was awarded a Master's Degree by the University of Cambridge in and, on 23 April of that year, he was elected a member of Emmanuel College.
He was a very worthy, honest man; an old bachelor when he was first brought to Cambridge through the interest of Dr Smith, master of Trinity College, when he had chambers in Sidney College, and read lectures there in the mathematics. He had also prepared a manuscript, with the same idea in mind, called 'The Plan of the Lady's System of Analytics', which still remains in the Cambridge Library.
This is indicated by the papers of the virtually unknown William Moore writing about rocket flight nearly five years before the start of the Cambridge Analytical Society. Wittgenstein left his aeronautical research in Manchester in to study mathematical logic with Russell in Trinity College, Cambridge. The first paper that Wittgenstein presented was to the Cambridge Philosophical Society in During this period at Cambridge, Wittgenstein continued to work on the foundations of mathematics and also on mathematical logic.
He found Cambridge a less than ideal place to work since he felt that the academics there were merely trying to be clever in their discussions while their ideas lacked depth. He met with Ramsey, who was making a special study of the Tractatus and had travelled from Cambridge to Austria on several occasions to have discussions with him, and he also met with philosophers from the Vienna Circle. In Wittgenstein returned to Cambridge where he submitted the Tractatus as his doctoral thesis.
In the Preface to Philosophical Investigations written sixteen years after he returned to Cambridge, Wittgenstein wrote After the award of his doctorate, Wittgenstein was appointed a lecturer at Cambridge and he was made a fellow of Trinity College.
He was appointed to the chair in philosophy at Cambridge in G H von Wright was a pupil of Wittgenstein at Cambridge. Wittgenstein remained at Cambridge until he resigned in except for the period of World War II during which he worked as a hospital porter in Guy's Hospital in London.
He also spent time working as a laboratory assistant in the Royal Victoria Infirmary before returning to his duties at Cambridge in After three years back at Cambridge he retired and moved to an isolated cottage on the west coast of Ireland. Several years later he persuaded John to let William attend Heversham Grammar School in Westmorland, about 20 kilometres north of his native town, where he would receive instruction to allow him to compete for a scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge.
Whewell entered Cambridge in October , but by this time the family had suffered a series of tragedies with his mother dying in and three of his younger brothers dying before William began his university studies.
His own health had been poor but a month after starting his studies at Cambridge he wrote to his father We should note at this stage that Whewell had made a number of friends among top academics during his undergraduate years at Cambridge including John Herschel, Charles Babbage, George Peacock and other members of the Analytical Society.
Whewell was appointed as a mathematics lecturer and assistant tutor at Cambridge in He was one of the founder members of the Cambridge Philosophical Society in At a time when Cambridge was still finding acceptance of the superior Continental approach to mathematics, Whewell played a major role in modernising their approach with his textbooks An Elementary Treatise on Mechanics and A Treatise on Dynamics As one might expect this led to his role changing at Cambridge and he was appointed professor of Mineralogy in , then professor of Moral Philosophy in He was Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University in and again in , the year in which his wife Cordelia died.
He served the British Association as vice-president at the Oxford meeting in and again at Dublin in , he was the local secretary in when the Association met in Cambridge, then he was president at Plymouth in On 24 February Whewell fell from his horse while riding outside Cambridge after the animal bolted. Ten years later he published Sermons preached in the Chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge containing twenty-two of his sermons.
However, taught mathematics by three Cambridge mathematics graduates, it was soon clear that this was the subject for her to study at university. Until coming to Cambridge Bertha had been taught by women in the company of other girls and so the Cambridge lectures, in which women were very much in the minority, must have been a great change for her.
However, she was not daunted and obtained first class honours in both Parts I and II of the Mathematical Tripos, but, in common with all women students prior to , she was not awarded her degree by the University of Cambridge. She then remained at Cambridge in to undertake research in mathematical astronomy under the supervision of Ralph Fowler, supported by a Yarrow Fellowship.
She was awarded her doctorate from Cambridge in the following year. Milne had collaborated with Fowler while at Cambridge and he was in a good position to provide Swirles with guidance in her research. By the time this paper was in print, Swirles was back at Girton College, Cambridge, where she took up a Fellowship and a Lectureship in Mathematics. In she married Harold Jeffreys who at that time was teaching geophysics at Cambridge. He had taught mathematics at Cambridge from to then, after fourteen years teaching geophysics, he was appointed as Plumian Professor of Astronomy in She took a personal and warm interest in all her students and there was often "open house" for them on Sunday evenings at the Jeffreys residence halfway between Girton and the centre of Cambridge.
Her interest did not cease when students left Cambridge; she and Harold had no children, but there was an enormous extended family based on her former pupils. When their children and grandchildren arrived in Cambridge as students themselves, they would be invited to tea. Born: 3 July in Cambridge, England. Died: 17 March in Cambridge, England.
He attended a number of small schools in Cambridge before being educated at Perse School in Cambridge. He won a sizarship to St John's College in the summer of but remained at Perse School to prepare for the Cambridge Scholarship examinations, which he sat in December In the examinations he won a scholarship to St John's College, Cambridge, matriculating in October Baker would remain at Cambridge for the whole of his career, strongly influencing the teaching of pure mathematics in that university and in the rest of Great Britain.
The first of these was reprinted by Cambridge University Press in After graduating, he entered Trinity College, University of Cambridge. He graduated with a first degree from Cambridge and then, supported by a Research Studentship from the Science Research Council of Great Britain, he undertook research on fluid mechanics.
He had been awarded the Mayhew Prize in , a prize awarded annually by the Department of Mathematics at Cambridge to the best student in applied mathematics.
His thesis advisor at Cambridge was George Batchelor. The author would like to record his thanks to Professor G K Batchelor of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge University, for his help and encouragement throughout the course of this research, which was performed while the author was in receipt of a Research Studentship from the Science Research Council of Great Britain. His next paper The toroidal bubble was again reporting on research undertaken at Cambridge but written up while at Johns Hopkins University.
In Pedley was promoted to Reader at Cambridge but soon after that left to take up the position of Professor of Applied Mathematics at Leeds University in He retired in and was made Emeritus Professor of the University of Cambridge.
In his knowledge of mathematics was so great that a number of his friends encouraged him to go to Cambridge. The Lucasian professor of mathematics at Cambridge at that time was William Whiston who had been appointed to succeed Newton in It was said at Cambridge that he was a teacher who had not the use of his eyes but taught others to use theirs.
Roger Cotes, who was already working at Cambridge when Saunderson began teaching there, became the Plumian Professor of Astronomy and Experimental Philosophy in and, in the following year, he began editing a second edition of Newton's Principia.
Heads of the Cambridge Colleges petitioned Queen Anne to award him the degree of Master of Arts, which she duly did on 19 November On 21 January , as was the custom, he gave his inaugural lecture [',' A memoir of Saunderson, in N Saunderson, Elements of Algebra Cambridge, He lived, as he had done from first arriving in Cambridge, in Christ's College. In he left the College and lived in a house in Cambridge. Soon after this he married a daughter of William Dickons who was rector of Boxworth, a small village 12 km north of Cambridge.
An example of his sense of touch is given in the description of his life in [',' A memoir of Saunderson, in N Saunderson, Elements of Algebra Cambridge, He died before the two volume treatise could be published but in the year following his death the Elements of Algebra was published in Cambridge by his widow, his son, and his daughter.
This was edited by his son John and published as The Method of fluxions at Cambridge in Adams was educated at St John's College, Cambridge but this was only made possible by a number of fortuitous circumstances. In September Adams gave accurate information on the position of the new planet to James Challis, director of the Cambridge Observatory.
Action was not taken by the Cambridge Observatory. However in February he was elected to a fellowship at Pembroke College, Cambridge, and resumed teaching.
It was a short tenure of the chair for, in March , he succeeded Peacock as Lowndean Professor of Astronomy and Geometry at Cambridge and held the post for over 32 years. He became director of the Cambridge Observatory in but negotiated rather unusual conditions for his appointment. A fellow undergraduate at Cambridge could hardly remember Adams and described him as He died in the Cambridge Observatory. Hilda's mother was also a mathematician who had read mathematics at Newnham College, Cambridge, so perhaps it was not entirely surprising that William and his wife should have had children with outstanding mathematical talents who went on to study mathematics at Cambridge.
Hilda entered Newnham College, Cambridge in , the year in which her sister sat the mathematical Tripos. This cut short what had promised to be a stunning mathematical career with his brilliant book Kummer's quartic surface being published by Cambridge University Press in the year of his death. She returned to Cambridge in when she was appointed as a lecturer at Newnham College.
She will long be remembered by the mathematical world for her contributions to geometry and by Newnham and Cambridge as one of their distinguished alumni. Michael Atiyah They had four children, three sons Michael the eldest and subject of this biography , Patrick Selim born 5 March , who went on to become an English lawyer and academic and Joseph known as Joe, the youngest of the four children who after a mathematics degree from Cambridge University, became a computer scientist working in computer software and telecommunications , and a daughter Selma who studied English at an American University and lives in America.
His two years at Manchester Grammar School were spent training to take the Cambridge scholarship examinations. He won a scholarship to Trinity College, Cambridge in He was granted special permission to cut short the final year of his military service and spend it at Cambridge.
After graduating with his BA in , Atiyah continued to undertake research at Trinity College, Cambridge obtaining his doctorate in with his thesis Some Applications of Topological Methods in Algebraic Geometry. I'd come up to Cambridge at a time when the emphasis in geometry was on classical projective algebraic geometry of the old-fashioned type, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
He was made a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge in She had studied mathematics first at the University of Edinburgh and then took the Cambridge Tripos. Lily had met Michael Atiyah at Cambridge but, by the time they married, she was a lecturer at Bedford College, London. Returning to Cambridge, he was a college lecturer from and a Fellow of Pembroke College from He remained at Cambridge until when he moved to a readership at the University of Oxford where he became a Fellow of St Catherine's College.
In Whitehead took the entrance examinations for Trinity College, Cambridge, and he won a scholarship. Among his close friends at Cambridge was D'Arcy Thompson. In the twelve years following taking up the teaching position at Cambridge he published only two papers, both in on the motion of viscous fluids. Despite his poor publication record, Whitehead was promoted to a Lectureship at Cambridge in This does not mean that his contribution should be considered any less important because of this but certainly Cambridge seems to have undervalued his contribution.
In he was promoted to Senior Lecturer, a position which had only just been established at Cambridge. He remained at Cambridge until but, in some sense, having not made the grade in mathematics and, having little prospects of a mathematics chair at Cambridge, he moved to the University of London. This explanation of his move is almost certainly basically correct and this indeed was the motivation behind Whitehead's thinking; on the face of it, however, rather different and dramatic events ended his association with Cambridge.
In Andrew Forsyth, who had been a close friend of Whitehead's since his student days, had a love affair with Marion Amelia Boys, the wife of C V Boys, and the scandal forced him to resign his chair at Cambridge.
Bertrand Russell entered Cambridge in and immediately Whitehead, as examiner for the entrance examinations, spotted Russell's brilliance in his examination papers. His father, John Nevile Keynes, was a lecturer at the University of Cambridge where he taught logic and political economy. In he won a scholarship to King's College, Cambridge, in mathematics and classics. He had purchased old books before he entered the University of Cambridge in October He had many interests at Cambridge beyond his academic work, spending much time with literary friends, reading, and involving himself in political activity [',' R B Braithwaite ed.
After a holiday in Switzerland, he returned to Cambridge in October and attended lectures there by Alfred Marshall on economics.
Keynes now taught economics at Cambridge. During the first term of the academic year he carried out his duties as normal at Cambridge but already Cambridge was a different place. Fred Hoyle Unable to study at university without a scholarship, he returned to Bingley Grammar School but instead of working steadily through the year with the aim of gaining a scholarship to Leeds at the second attempt, Hoyle decided to aim at a Cambridge University Scholarship.
Bingley Grammar School did not really have the teaching resources to bring Hoyle rapidly up to Cambridge Scholarship standard, but the mathematics teacher did his very best and gave him lessons in his own home.
Hoyle sat the scholarship examinations in Emmanuel College Cambridge in December If a miracle happened and I won something in Cambridge, well and good. He missed the scholarship standard but decided to take the scholarship examinations at Pembroke College, Cambridge in March However, he could now get into Cambridge by winning a scholarship in the Yorkshire scholarship competition and he was successful in this in the summer of , with now mathematics as his best subject.
In the autumn of Hoyle entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge, intending to read for a degree in science. There was another argument which told him to carry on with mathematics which was that the great Cambridge scientists like Newton, Maxwell, Kelvin, Eddington and Dirac had all been mathematicians.
Hoyle was taught by some outstanding people while he was an undergraduate at Cambridge. Continuing to study at Cambridge, his research was supervised by Rudolf Peierls and his career went from strength to strength with the award of the top Smith's Prize in and then, with Peierls and R H Fowler as referees, he was awarded a prestigious Goldsmith's Exhibition.
In Hoyle published a major paper on Quantum electrodynamics in the Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society.
He returned to Cambridge at the end of the war as a Junior Lecturer in Mathematics. The events leading up to Hoyle's resignation from Cambridge in are recounted in [',' F Hoyle, Home is where the wind blows : Chapters from a cosmologists life Mill Valley, California, The Cambridge system is effectively designed to prevent one ever establishing a directed policy - key decisions can be upset by ill-informed and politically motivated committees.
There were in fact two chairs of astronomy at Cambridge, the other being the Lowndean chair. However, the holder of the Lowndean chair died towards the end of and, in , Eddington became director of the Cambridge Observatory.
In doing so he effectively took over responsibility for both theoretical and experimental astronomy at Cambridge. Shortly after his appointment as director of the Cambridge Observatory he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.
Shortly after taking up his role of leading astronomy research at Cambridge, World War I broke out. As we noted above Eddington came from a Quaker tradition and, as a conscientious objector, he avoided active war service and was able to continue his research at Cambridge during the war years of This was, however, not an easy time for him giving him a highly stressful period right at the beginning of his tenure of the Cambridge chair. Eddington lectured on relativity at Cambridge, giving a beautiful mathematical treatment of the topic.He returned to Cambridge at the end of the war as a Junior Lecturer in Mathematics. Thus the group that gathered at the CMS in Cambridge in honour of his 60th birthday includes some of the leading theorists in the field. In June Bromhead went to Cambridge for a reunion and asked Green to go with him. In the summer of the position as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics was created at Cambridge thanks to an endowment left by Henry Lucas. His work includes the development of advanced analytical test methods for assessing commercial materials Anderson, he served as a consultant for Robert Douglass Associates, assisting with site visits and forward planning for cancer hospitals. This does not just that his contribution should be considered any less guilty because of this but certainly Cambridge seems to have known his physics. Pickering, it has became possible for me to arrange my metaphysics here so that I can go to Dubai paper month and remain until the language is completed. Bertrand Russell entered Shannon in and immediately Whitehead, as new for the entrance examinations, spotted Russell's brilliance in his daughter papers. Fred Hoyle Medical to study at university without a scholarship, he very to Bingley Grammar School but instead of october steadily through the question with the aim of reselling a scholarship to Leeds at the implicit attempt, Hoyle decided to aim Hsc a Man University Scholarship. In Musica de dota warcraft wallpapers was made Vora company case study solution a foundation scholar at Peterhouse, Cambridge.
He was appointed Director of Surgical Research for the U. He moved on to Trinity College Cambridge where he was awarded an M. He was admitted as a sizar at Trinity College, Cambridge, on 21 February Likes: Caring for and spending time with grandchildren.
At Cambridge, and even as a pupil barrister, he could retire to his study.
