This is an annex to the Index of Mathematicians. The following entries in that index are elusive on the web as people however ubiquitous
and important their mathematical work. If you know of a link that I could use in
my Index of Mathematicians I would be greatful
to hear of it. Better still, contribute an article to Wikipedia,
so that everyone may benefit.
There are various references on the web to
a Jillian Beardwood involved in transport policy-making, which would constitute
a curious coincidence were they not referring to the Beardwood of shortest routes
He was a student of James Alexander according to the latter's genealogy, being award his PhD in 1927. He was elected to AMS membership in February 1922.
He 'belongs' to Sebrell, Southampton county, Virginia, according to this 1925 Princeton yearbook entry. His dates may be 1894–1959. Internet searches for his details are hampered by his name being shared with
a character in Twin Peaks.
Known for his 1950 publication "Su una presumibile proprietà caratteristica dei numeri primi",Ist. Lombardo Sci. Lett. Cl. Sci. Mat. Nat. Rend. (3) 14 (1950), 511–528. More on the journal may be found here.
He is obscured by being (I assume it is the same DWH Jr) the son of a famous humorist of the same name. Some reminiscences of James R.F. Kent including mention of Hall during his time at Binghamton are here. His PhD was at Virginia in 1938 and he supervised at Maryland College Park (reminiscences from that time). It seems he was adopted during childhood, and that he suffered from cerebral palsy.
Born 1861. Graduated from Tinity College Cambridge, 3rd Wrangler, 1883, 1st Division in Part III., 1884. Then Smith's prizewinner (one A.N. Whitehead was a runner-up!) (Nature 33, 93-93, 26 November 1885), at which time he was a mathematics
instructor at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, then returning to Cambridge as a coach in 1899 ("Geometry at Cambridge, 1863–1940",
June Barrow-Green, Jeremy Gray, Historia Mathematica, vol. 33, (3), 315-356). Published his work on systems of circles in 1886 (Proc. Royal Soc.). Contributed to a book on mathematics of map making by Gerald Maxwell which was (unfavourably) reviewed in The Geographical Journal, Vol. 48, No. 2 (Aug., 1916), pp. 168-170. June Barrow-Green has alerted me to a fairly complete record in the Alumni Cantabrigiensis.
To quote from the blurb of his Collected Papers, "Especially among Japanese mathematicians Mitio Nagumo (1905-1995) is regarded as one of the greatest pioneers in research on differential equations." But it does not appear that even Japanese Wikipedia has an entry for him.
Presumably not the educationalist who was working at the same time. There was a chemist of this name also active and it is plausible that a chemist might have published on tilings. The original article by Robin is available online but gives no affilliation.
