Search Results for health


  1. Daniel da Silva (1814-1878)
    • His health was not good and he had to take periods away from teaching due to these problems.
    • He was promoted to First Lieutenant of the Navy in 1851 but in 1852 his health problems became so severe that he applied for leave to go to Madeira where he hoped he would recover.
    • From 1851 to 1859 he seems to have been unable to carry out his duties due to his poor health and on 12 July 1859 the Naval Health Board classed him "unfit for active duty." In fact da Silva published a Memoir in 1854, which he had read to the Royal Academy of Sciences of Lisbon in 1852, but the publisher added a note which [',' L M R Saraiva, Mathematics in the Memoirs of the Lisbon Academy of Sciences in the 19th century, Historia Mathematica 35 (2008), 302-326.','9]:- .
    • By 1859 there appears to have been a small improvement in his health and, on the 16 April of that year, he married Zefferina d'Aguiar (1825-1913) from the town of Funchal.
    • Once retired, da Silva's health improved a little and he taught some courses at the University of Coimbra.
    • Most of da Silva's mathematical contributions were made during the years when he was forced to give up teaching because of ill health.
    • Da Silva's health prevented him from doing any serious mathematical research in the years following 1852.
    • However, only many later, after he had retired, his health did improve a little and he again undertook research.
    • His ill health prevented him playing as large a role in the Academy as he wished but, nevertheless, the Academy proposed that he be elected a "Member of Merit" in 1858 and, at the session which took place on 20 January 1859, the honour was conferred.

  2. Benjamin Osgood Peirce (1854-1914)
    • In 1847, because his wife was suffering ill health, he moved north to Beverly, Massachusetts, north of Boston, where his son Benjamin Osgood Peirce, the subject of this biography, was born.
    • In fact he worked so hard during this period that he damaged his health and suffered for it for some months afterwards.
    • However, the extreme hard work that he undertook over many years eventually took its toll on his health and in 1900 he suffered a collapse.
    • He returned to teaching in 1902 but his health was still poor.
    • His health slowly improved and he became more active in research than ever: for example, he published 4 papers in 1903.
    • Often his friends would remonstrate with him against his risking his health by overwork, but it was impossible to get him to desist.
    • The extreme activity that Peirce began after his illness in 1900-02 continued until the spring of 1913 when again his health became so bad that he was forced to stop teaching before the end of the academic year.
    • During his visit to Britain Peirce's health gave cause for concern, he suffered a minor stroke and had heart problems.

  3. Pierre Fatou (1878-1929)
    • Pierre, the subject of this biography, might have followed the same route into the navy, which it appears his family would have liked, but his health was not sufficiently good for him to pursue this type of career.
    • One should treat this with a little caution since Fatou's health was poor and he applied for sick leave from the Observatory from 1 May 1906 to 31 August 1906.
    • He also had stomach problems so health may have been a major factor in what his superiors at the Observatory considered his poor performance.
    • However, Chazy suggests Fatou's work at the Observatory was excellent despite his health problems [','Rend.
    • Fatou's health was often precarious, and the observations put his physical resistance to a severe test; but he was very conscientious in all the tasks that were entrusted to him, in particular in the redaction of the observations, in the discussion of instrumental constants.
    • His health continued to cause him problems and he again asked for sick leave for the months of March and April in 1912.
    • Certainly his health was not good enough to see him given military duties during World War I and he continued to work at the Observatory.

  4. Kurt Gödel (1906-1978)
    • Although there is no evidence that he did have a weak heart, Kurt became convinced that he did, and concern for his health became an everyday worry for him.
    • This would make a big impact on any student, but on Godel who was very conscious of his own health, it had a major influence.
    • Despite the health problems, Godel's research was progressing well and he proved important results on the consistency of the axiom of choice with the other axioms of set theory in 1935.
    • Of course he was also convinced that he was in far too poor health to serve in the army, but if he could be mistaken for a Jew he might be mistaken for a healthy man.
    • Concerns with his health became increasingly worrying to Godel as the years went by.
    • However she herself began to suffer health problems, having two strokes and a major operation.
    • A slight person and very fastidious, Godel was generally worried about his health and did not travel or lecture widely in later years.

  5. Gotthold Eisenstein (1823-1852)
    • Eisenstein suffered all his life from bad health but at least he survived childhood which none of his five brothers and sisters succeeded in doing.
    • While he was at elementary school he had health problems but these may have had a lot to do with the schools which he attended.
    • When he was about ten years old his parents tried to find a solution to his continual health problems by sending him to Cauer Academy in Charlottenburg, a district of Berlin which was not incorporated into the city until 1920.
    • Rather than improve his health problem, it had the opposite effect and in addition to continuing physical illnesses he suffered from depression.
    • He was released on the following day but the severe treatment which he had received caused a sharp deterioration in his already delicate health.
    • Despite his health problems Eisenstein published one treatise after another on quadratic partition of prime numbers and reciprocity laws.
    • He had successfully obtained funds to allow Eisenstein to spend time in Sicily in order to recover his health, but it was too late.

  6. René Baire (1874-1932)
    • During this period he was found to be in delicate health.
    • Even before presenting his thesis Baire had suffered from poor health and, after the award of his doctorate, he was only able to contribute to mathematics for a few short spells.
    • Baire's health had never been good since he was young but from the time he was at the Lycee at Bar-le-Duc it began to deteriorate to the stage that it prevented him from working.
    • Then near the beginning of 1914 he requested leave so that he might try to recover his health.
    • Baire felt that he deserved a professorship in Paris and failing to achieve this, it was suggested, caused him depression and hence his ill health.
    • When his health was good, the quality of his lectures received rather differing opinions from his students.

  7. Jan Mikusiski (1913-1987)
    • However, his health was very fragile and he felt that he would not be physically able to become an engineer so, after beginning his studies in 1932 at the University of Poznań, he concentrated on mathematics.
    • His health did not allow him to continue even with mathematics and he took a break of about three years before his health recovered sufficiently to enable him to continue his studies.
    • He developed serious eye problems which made teaching and research almost impossible and he requested a period of sick leave in which he might recover his health.
    • During the 27 years that he spent in Katowice, Mikusiński struggled to overcome health problems [',' Jan Mikusinski: 3 April 1913-27 July 1987, Studia Math.
    • In spite of bad conditions of his health, he was a very active researcher and worked to the last days of his life.

  8. Jacques Bertillon (1851-1922)
    • His classification was adopted by the American Health Association in 1897 and then it was approved as the international standard by an International Commission in Paris in 1900.
    • To you, Monsieur, I say marry and you will do well even from a selfish standpoint; but watch carefully over your wife's health as, even from this egotistical point of view, her loss will be a terrible misfortune; for your life depends in a great measure on her own.
    • Among the many honours given to Bertillon, let us note that the Vital Statistics Section of The American Public Health Association unanimously adopted the following at its meeting in New York City on 18 November 1921:- .
    • Whereas, Dr Jacques Bertillon, though in ill health, has recently carried through successfully the arduous labours connected with the third decennial session of the Commission already referred to, .
    • Be it resolved, that the Vital Statistics Section of The American Public Health Association express to Dr Jacques Bertillon, Secretary General of the International Commission for the Revision of the International List of Causes of Sickness and Death, appreciation of his untiring efforts to procure comparable international statistics of sickness and mortality, and extend to him the good wishes of the Association for his rapid and complete recovery.

  9. Egon Pearson (1895-1980)
    • World War I began in 1914 before he was due to matriculate at Cambridge, and had Pearson's health been good he would have found himself in military service.
    • However, his health had never been good as a child and he had a heart murmur which now prevented him from enlisting.
    • Even then it took place simply because Karl Pearson's health prevented him teaching, rather than for positive reasons.
    • Pearson had a quiet disposition, but his shy and rather diffident manner hid an independent and pertinacious spirit which had enabled him to surmount both the controversies surrounding his father Karl and contemporaries like Fisher and Neyman, and some health problems, such as his delicate health when an undergraduate, a heart condition of long standing, and occasional back trouble due to his considerable height.

  10. Mikhail Yakovlevich Suslin (1894-1919)
    • It seems that Suslin's health was also causing him concern.
    • The problems were basically health problems, made considerably worse by severe food shortages.
    • The severe cold and lack of food exacerbated Suslin's health problems.
    • On 14 June 1919 he requested leave for the whole summer vacation so that he could return to his parents' home and recover his health.
    • In his resignation letter he again explains his health problems (see [',' V I Igoshin, A short biography of Mikhail Yakovlevich Suslin, Russian Math.

  11. Pierre Verhulst (1804-1849)
    • However, he had to give up this position after a while since his health was too poor to allow him to continue.
    • In fact he was plagued with bad health throughout his life but the records that exist do not allow us to come to any definite decision about the nature of his illness.
    • However in an attempt to overcome his illness he decided to travel to Italy in the hope that the warm climate would improve his health.
    • A young Belgian scholar, Mr Verhulst, had come to Rome for his health.
    • However, the bad health which he had suffered from earlier returned to make his life increasing difficult over the last years of his life.

  12. Henry Smith (1826-1883)
    • This was made harder since his health was poor (a brother and sister had both died) and he was taken to Italy after the death of his brother in 1845 instead of completing his final year at Rugby.
    • At 19 he became a student at Balliol, but while spending the summer vacation in Italy his health problems became acute when he contracted smallpox.
    • After his health recovered he returned to Oxford in 1847 and in 1849 was awarded a double first in mathematics and classics.
    • Despite health problems when he was a student, Smith mostly enjoyed excellent health until 1881 when his heath began to deteriorate, mainly due to the extremely high level of work that he continued to undertake.

  13. Ruggero Giuseppe Boscovich (1711-1787)
    • He certainly was aware, however, of his father's ill health for Nikola died when Boscovich was ten years old having been confined to bed during these ten years.
    • Boscovich's mother Pavica was a very active and able woman who continued to keep the family happy despite the health problems of her husband.
    • It was a punishing schedule and under the pressure his health broke down on several occasions.
    • Little wonder that his health became poor, but again he recovered to continue with the punishing schedule.
    • He published a five volume treatise of his contributions in 1785 but the work involved in editing and correcting this had a negative affect on his health.

  14. Frank Morley (1860-1937)
    • However ill health disrupted Morley's undergraduate course and he was forced to take an extra year because of these health problems.
    • Ill health beyond all doubt had prevented him from doing himself justice, but the disappointment was keen.
    • This was an important period for Morley since he was able to overcome his health problems and with the improvement in health came a renewed confidence in his own mathematical abilities.

  15. Pao Lu Hsu (1910-1970)
    • partly owing to fragile health he never married but apparently came close to it.
    • Hsu had poor health from 1950.
    • Concerned about his health, the authorities repeatedly suggested that he go abroad to recuperate.
    • From 1956 on his health steadily worsened.
    • By the early 1960s his health had deteriorated to such an extent that he could stand in front of the blackboard for only a few minutes before he had to sit down and rest.

  16. Nicolas Vilant (1737-1807)
    • Plagued by ill-health, he was unable to teach for much of this time, and employed a series of assistants.
    • Though Vilant's colleagues complained of his inability to perform his duties, the historian David Masson [Masson, 1911; 45] later drew attention to "a tradition of unusual mathematical excellence and ardour" dating from the time that "the nominal incumbent of the mathematical chair, Professor Vilant, finding himself disqualified by ill-health, had committed the duties ..
    • The whole up to page 129, was printed in 1777; but owing to the Author's bad health, etc it was not until 1783, that the same with the addition of the quarter sheet from page 129 to page 133 was used here as a Text Book.
    • Vilant states in his preface that he "proposes hereafter to publish a complete System of the Elements of Mathematical Analysis demonstrated", but this would have to wait until "his health will allow him to arrange properly what he hath prepared on this subject." His health did not allow this, but thirteen volumes of manuscripts on this theme, and some other subjects, are preserved in St Andrews University Library.

  17. Léon Foucault (1819-1868)
    • When Leon was young his father retired, since his health was rather poor, and the family moved from Paris to Nantes.
    • However retirement did not result in any improvement in his father's health and he died in Nantes in 1829 when Leon was nine years old.
    • It was not only Leon's father who suffered from poor health, for Leon himself was a very frail child.
    • Nothing about the boy announced that he would be illustrious some day; his health was delicate, his character mild, timid and not expansive.

  18. Christian Adolph Mayer (1839-1908)
    • As he grew older, his health was not so robust and he complained of hoarseness which he tried to cure by resting beside the lake.
    • He made a final effort to overcome his health problems, travelling with his wife and daughter to Bozen, then in Austria.
    • There, in the mountain air, his health began to improve and he wrote some letters to his colleagues which were full of confidence that he would soon be fully fit again.
    • Suddenly his health deteriorated rapidly and he died peacefully in Bozen.

  19. Adriaan van Roomen (1561-1615)
    • Partly this was because his health was poorly and partly it was because of his duties - he was dean of the medical school in 1596, in 1599 and for a third time in 1602.
    • Van Roomen was so impressed by Viete's mathematical talent that he visited France to recover his health and personally met his French rival in the summer of 1601.
    • It is clear that by this time van Roomen was sufficiently concerned about his health that, in 1613, he travelled to Leuven where he made a will.
    • Returning to Leuven later in the same month, he visited a Spa in an attempt to improve his health.

  20. Edmond Laguerre (1834-1886)
    • Edmond Laguerre had poor health as a boy and this impeded his studies.
    • His parents were forced to move him from one public school to another because of these health problems.
    • This in no way reflected his ability, rather it showed that he was badly affected by health problems.
    • He was appointed to this chair in 1883 but his health, which had always been poor, broke down completely in February 1886.

  21. William Wallace (1768-1843)
    • Wallace retired from his chair at Edinburgh in 1838 due to ill health.
    • Indeed his health had broken down in 1835 and for his last three years in the chair at Edinburgh he did not even teach.
    • After his retirement, however, his health improved markedly as he reported in a letter written in 1839 (see for example [',' A D D Craik, Calculus and analysis in early 19th-century Britain : the work of William Wallace, Historia Math.
    • His remarkable return to health did not last very long, for he died five years after he retired.

  22. Augusta Ada Byron (1815-1852)
    • Few can have done more to mould the character of their child than Lady Byron did! The young Ada, however, had long suffered some health problems and in 1829 contracted measles from which she took a long while to recover.
    • This was the high point of her achievements and for a while she basked in the admiration that she received from her friends who knew who AAL was, but already these friends were showing concern about her health.
    • By the end of the year she was taking several medicines for different health problems which troubled her.
    • By January 1852 Lovelace was wracked with pain, as the cancer which presumably had been a major cause of her health problems for some time, became more acute.

  23. Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920)
    • The outbreak of World War I made obtaining special items of food harder and it was not long before Ramanujan had health problems.
    • The honours which were bestowed on Ramanujan seemed to help his health improve a little and he renewed his effors at producing mathematics.
    • By the end of November 1918 Ramanujan's health had greatly improved.
    • However his health was very poor and, despite medical treatment, he died there the following year.

  24. Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis (1698-1759)
    • It is fair to say that by this time Maupertuis had serious health problems.
    • Also he never reacted well to criticism, becoming ever more sensitive as his health declined, and we have already described the vicious personal attacks he made on his opponents in the argument about the shape of the Earth many years before.
    • Frederick tried to support the president of his Academy, but Maupertuis's failing health collapsed under the strain and he left Berlin for Paris in 1753.
    • Advised to travel to Italy for health reasons, he set out in June 1757.

  25. Francis Galton (1822-1911)
    • He wrote another interesting book aimed at giving advice to explorers The art of travel but, although he continued to travel a great deal in Europe, he made no further explorations as a result of his health which never recovered from his African experience.
    • In 1884-85 the International Health Exhibition was held and in connection with this Galton set up a laboratory to measure human statistics.
    • This laboratory continued in existence after the International Health Exhibition closed and it was the forerunner of the Biometric Laboratory run by Karl Pearson at University College, London.
    • His health began to limit the contributions he could make as he grew older [',' M Crackanthorpe, Letter to the Times, January 1911','4]:- .

  26. Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598-1647)
    • However, his health deteriorated around the time of his appointment to Bologna, and he suffered from problems with his legs which persisted throughout the rest of his life.
    • In 1636 he was suffering badly from gout and, to seek a cure, went to the health spa in Arcetri where he spent the summer.
    • His health had not improved and he was being pressed by the university authorities to work on astronomy rather than on mathematics, the topic that Cavalieri loved.
    • By 1646 his health had become so poor that he was forced to give up teaching.

  27. Jerzy Supecki (1904-1987)
    • Jerzy himself suffered poor health but had to work to support the family financially.
    • Sadly, his health had suffered during the Siberian winters and he now had a lung infection which forced him to terminate his studies of architecture.
    • After some improvement in his health, he decided to study mathematics at Warsaw University.
    • In December, seeing that his health was not good enough to give the Germans the hard labour required, they sent him back to Warsaw.

  28. Charles Babbage (1791-1871)
    • Babbage suffered ill health as a child, as he relates in [',' H P Babbage, Babbage’s calculating emgines (London, 1889).','4]:- .
    • Having suffered in health at the age of five years, and again at that of ten by violent fevers, from which I was with difficulty saved, I was sent into Devonshire and placed under the care of a clergyman (who kept a school at Alphington, near Exeter), with instructions to attend to my health; but, not to press too much knowledge upon me: a mission which he faithfully accomplished.
    • He own health gave way and he was advised to travel on the Continent.

  29. Matyá Lerch (1860-1922)
    • However, not long after he began his studies he was told that becoming a teacher was impossible since with his crippled leg he would never obtain the necessary health certificate.
    • Lerch suffered from diabetes which cased his health to progressively worsen over the years although staying at health resorts in the vacations improved things temporarily.
    • With his health already greatly weaken with diabetes, he died on the morning of 3 August.

  30. Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655)
    • Gassendi's health was rather poor by this stage in his life, being troubled by a lung complaint.
    • He accepted the Chair of Mathematics on the condition that he would be able to return to Provence when his health was too poor to remain in Paris; he was appointed with this being accepted.
    • As he had feared, Gassendi began to find that his health was making it very difficult for him to continue teaching so, as the conditions of his appointment allowed, he left for Provence in 1648.
    • He spent the following years partly in Digne and partly in Toulon; the latter he found particularly good for his health.

  31. Florence Nightingale (1820-1910)
    • Her wishes for a formal investigation were granted in May 1857 and led to the establishment of the Royal Commission on the Health of the Army.
    • Nightingale responded to the British war office's request for advice on army medical care in Canada and was also a consultant to the United States government on army health during the American Civil War.
    • This illness did not stop her, however, campaigning to improve health standards; she published 200 books, reports and pamphlets.
    • The Crimean Monument, erected in 1915 in Waterloo Place, London, was done so in honour of the contribution Florence Nightingale had made to this war and the health of the army.

  32. Carl Schoy (1877-1925)
    • However, there were food shortages, and Schoy's health problems, which had begun when he was still in Munich, continued to get worse.
    • He was forty-eight years of age and had not been in good health for some time, as his latest letter to me showed.
    • In an attempt to restore his health, Schoy and his wife went for a trip to the French Riviera in April and May 1924.
    • Schoy combined all these qualities, that is, he had gradually combined them at the cost of long studies and in spite of ill health and increasing discomfort.

  33. Felix Klein (1849-1925)
    • But unforeseen events and his always delicate health conspired against this plan.
    • his health collapsed completely, and throughout the years 1883-1884 he was plagued by depression.
    • Klein retired due to ill health in 1913.
    • However it was during this work that Klein's health collapsed as mentioned above.

  34. Karl Mollweide (1774-1825)
    • This was not the only problem faced by the new lecturer Mollweide for he was suffering severe health problems (probably caused by depression) which forced him to give up his position at Helmstedt after about a year and return to his home.
    • By this time his health improved sufficiently for him to consider accepting an offer of a professorship of mathematics and astronomy at the University of Halle.
    • He decided that his health was now good enough for him to accept the professorship and he took up the position in 1800.
    • In [',' R H Wu, The Story of Mollweide and Some Trigonometric Identities','9] Wu says that Mollweide's health problems were basically caused by depression, making him a hypochondriac, and this made him appear standoffish.

  35. Eduard Wiltheiss (1855-1900)
    • However his health deteriorated and his final research paper was Die partiellen Differentialgleichungen der Abel'schen Thetafunctionen dreier Argumente Ⓣ (1891).
    • Although he had been suffering from ill health over a period of time, it was in this final semester of 1892 that the effects of the illness became much more severe.
    • In the summer of 1892 he took premature retirement on grounds of ill health.

  36. Philipp Furtwängler (1869-1940)
    • To hear this quality of lectures from someone confined to a wheelchair who was paralysed from the neck down, would make a big impact on any student, but on Godel who was very conscious of his own health, it had an even bigger influence.
    • In January 1940 his health became even worse and everyone realised that he did not have long to live.
    • However, his health was too poor to allow him to complete the work which was intended for the Enzyklopadie der mathematischen Wissenschaften Ⓣ.

  37. Dmitry Aleksandrovich Grave (1863-1939)
    • However, his health was poor at this time and he was advised by his doctors to move to a place with a milder climate than St Petersburg, preferably in the south.
    • Now we mentioned that, when he had been in St Petersburg, Grave had been advised to move south for health reasons.
    • In fact the move to Kiev did not solve his health problems and, particularly during hard winters, he suffered serious illnesses.

  38. Alfred Kempe (1849-1922)
    • Kempe's health began to deteriorate in around 1912 and he began to wind down his extraordinarily busy life.
    • In 1919 he resigned his position as Treasurer of the Royal Society on health grounds.
    • Giving up some of his many duties seemed to give Kempe a few more years when his health did not deteriorate any further but in 1922 he developed pneumonia which led to his death.

  39. Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695)
    • From his youth Huygens' health had never been robust and in 1670 he had a serious illness which resulted in him leaving Paris for Holland.
    • However his health became even more unreliable and he became ill in 1679 and then again in 1681 when he returned to the Hague for the last time.
    • Again after his health returned he worked on a new marine clock during 1682 and, with the Dutch East India Company showing interest, he worked hard on the clocks.

  40. Kurt Mahler (1903-1988)
    • Because of these health problems he attended school for only four years leaving at Easter 1917 at the age of 13.
    • We wrote two joint papers, had many mathematical and political discussions, walked a great deal (despite his poor health, Mahler liked to walk very much) and we also played bridge.
    • As he grew older, deteriorating health made it more and more difficult for him to travel, but he remained mathematically active until the end.

  41. George Udny Yule (1871-1951)
    • He could beat the insurance companies but not his health for sadly he suffered a heart problem in 1931 which prevented him for flying and made him a partial invalid for the rest of his life.
    • As we mentioned above, Yule's health problems began in 1931 when he developed heart problems.
    • By the late 1940s, however, his health began to deteriorate again and he spent the last two and a half years of his life in nursing homes [',' M G Kendall, George Udny Yule 1871-1951, J.

  42. Hidehiko Yamabe (1923-1960)
    • The family were well off but Hidehiko's health was poor and his parents were warned by the doctor who treated him that he was unlikely to live much beyond twenty years of age.
    • Despite his health problems he loved sports at secondary school but his health prevented him from playing as much rugby as he would have liked.

  43. George Waddel Snedecor (1881-1974)
    • Because James had poor health, the family moved to an isolated log cabin home in Florida when George was one year old.
    • James regained his health and changed his profession, becoming a minister in the Presbyterian Church.
    • By 1965 Snedecor's own health was also failing and he took a heavy blow when his wife had a stroke in June 1966 falling into a coma which she never came out of; she died in September 1966.

  44. George Gibson (1858-1930)
    • This was certainly not because of any lack of ability, for he came top of almost every class he took (in fact every class except Moral Philosophy), but rather it was due to ill health which caused him to miss two sessions.
    • Because of his health problems, Gibson only took an ordinary degree rather than an honours degree.
    • He continued to hold this post until he retired due to ill health in 1927.

  45. Gregory of Saint-Vincent (1584-1667)
    • These were years of great difficulty since his health was poor but there was also severe tensions between the fervent Catholicism of Ferdinand and the Protestant nobles.
    • Sadly his health was still not robust enough to allow him to accept such an offer and he was forced to decline.
    • Despite his poor health, Saint-Vincent turned to another of the classical problems of mathematics, namely the duplication of the cube.

  46. Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
    • Times were hard particularly since Michael's father had poor health and was not able to provide much for his family.
    • The extremely high workload eventually told on Faraday's health and in 1839 he suffered a nervous breakdown.
    • He did recover his health and by 1845 he began intense research activity again.

  47. Gaspard Monge (1746-1818)

  50. Brook Taylor (1685-1731)
    • It was a position which Taylor held from 14 January of that year until 21 October 1718 when he resigned, partly for health reasons, partly due to his lack of interest in the rather demanding position.
    • These were made partly for health reasons and partly to visit the friends he had made there.
    • The surprising number of major concepts that he touched upon, initially developed, but failed to elaborate further leads one to regret that health, family concerns and sadness, or other unassessable factors, including wealth and parental dominance, restricted the mathematically productive portion of his relatively short life.

  51. Leone Burton (1936-2007)
    • Shortly after beginning the course her health failed and she had to give up.

    • Ascoli had not had to undergo military service after completing his degree since his health was not good enough.
    • The lively mathematical environment in Turin provided a powerful incentive to Ascoli to resume research in analysis and also, around 1925, his health markedly improved.

  55. Ernst Zermelo (1871-1953)
    • His health was poor but his position was helped by the award of a prize of 5000 marks for his major contributions to set theory.
    • The prize was awarded on the initiative of Hilbert and certainly it was an attempt to enable Zermelo rest and so to regain his health.
    • When his health had not improved by 1916 Zermelo resigned his chair in Zurich and moved to the Black Forest in Germany where he lived for ten years.

  56. Ottó Steinfeld (1924-1990)

    • Casorati had been approached but his health was not up to the task.

  62. Carl Jacobi (1804-1851)
    • The climate in Italy did indeed help Jacobi to recover and he began to publish again, his health having prevented him working for some time before this.

    • However he completely recovered and, as we mentioned, remained in good health.

  67. James Mercer (1883-1932)
    • He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1922 but after this time his health, which had been poor for some time, began to fail.

    • His output of original work would no doubt have been much larger had he not been continually hampered by bad health.

  68. Georg Feigl (1890-1945)
    • Due to ill health his study of mathematics and physics took longer than expected and a severe chronic stomach problem forced him to interrupt his work on several occasions.
    • He obtained a degree from Jena taking much longer than was normal because of his health problems, then in 1919 he obtained a doctorate from Jena working under Koebe.
