Abstract

Later in 1957, as the end of my three-year tour of duty in the Navy was approaching, Princeton invited me to return as Higgins Lecturer in Mathematics. I had been aWilliams undergraduate and a then a graduate student at Cambridge and Princeton while getting my Ph.D. I had published 4 papers in non-linear differential equations, a subject to which I had been introduced by two wonderful people whose support and encouragement made an unforgettable and wonderful difference in my life: Professor Donald Richmond of Williams College and Professor Solomon Lefschetz of Princeton.
