Biography of Mathematicians

Post here as a “comment” which mathematician you’re doing a biography on. It will require that you register and login to my website. Whoever posts a particular mathematician first will get to do that mathematician. Once you’re done the biography, you can email me or print it out and bring it to class on Tuesday. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
