Abstract:

Jacobson talks about the mathematics community in Fine Hall and especially about the following members of or visitors to the University or the Institute: James Alexander, Solomon Lefschetz, Paul Alexandroff, Hermann Weyl, J.H.C. Whitehead, and Emmy Noether. McShane talks about conditions in Palmer Laboratory before the move to Fine Hall, about the large number of foreigners in Fine Hall, and about Noether, von Neumann, Einstein and others. Duren tells of his year (1936-1937) at the Institute. He explains the influence of Reinhold Baer, Martson Morse, and others had on him. Jacobson talks about how the mathematics graduate students learned as much from each other as from the faculty.

Jacobson describes the rivalry between two schools of topology: algebraic topology as practiced by Oswald Veblen at Princeton, and point-set topology as practiced by R.L. Moore at Texas.
