Description:
The following is a list, mainly of women mathematicians, of those who submitted biographical and bibliographical information about themselves to the Division of Mathematics of NMAH. Many of these women attended a 1981 meeting at the Museum that honored American women who received PhDs in mathematics prior to World War II. Others on the list later submitted the same sort of information to the division between 1981 and 1987.
Also on this list are seven male mathematicians, two of whom are fathers of women on the list and five of whom are husbands of women on the list. With the exception of Vera (Ames) Widder (1909–2004), Bryn Mawr College, 1938, all those who attended the 1981 meeting returned questionnaires. For each person listed we give name, dates of birth and death, school awarding doctorate, and year of that degree. A name in parentheses is the surname before marriage, and a number in parentheses at the end of an entry refers to a comment following the list. An asterisk before a name means that the woman attended the 1981 meeting.
