Photos from the 2010 Lennes Lecture
N.J. Lennes was the chair of UM’s math department from 1913 to 1944. As part of the Math Awareness Month activities in April 2010, Professor David Zitarelli of Temple University gave a colloquium talk titled “N.J. Lennes, Montana, and Mathematics in the U.S. 1892-1922”. One can read more about this subject in Dr. Zitarelli’s interesting article in the April 2009 issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society.
After the talk, some of the older attendees gathered in front of the math building for a photo with Emma Lommasson, who had been the assistant of N.J. Lennes for many years.
