NJC (Douglass) Math Faculty in 1946 Katharine Hazard, Robert Walter, Grace Bolton, Cyril Nelson |
NJC (Douglass) Math Faculty in 1953 Cyril Nelson, Mrs. Shirley Gilbert, Katharine Hazard, Robert Walter | |

On April 23, 1947 the Rutgers Trustees promoted Hazard to Assistant Professor. This appointment was for 6 years, and was renewed in 1953 for another 6 years. At some point, she was promoted to the rank of full Professor.

Katharine Hazard retired in 1981, when the Douglass College and Rutgers College faculty merged to form the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS). The annual Katharine Hazard Prize in Mathematics is awarded in her honor to a first-year student at Douglass College who has done exceptional work in mathematics.

Her book with D.C. Spencer and N.E. Steenrod, *Advanced Calculus*
was published in 1959. In addition, she published 8 papers during 1958-1988
in the field of Differential Geometry.

The annual Jacqueline B. Lewis Memorial Award goes to a non-traditional graduate student in Mathematics or Psychology. In addition, the Lewis Memorial Lectures are given each year The lectures were endowed in 1983 by a gift from Dean Lewis' aunt, Lillian Nassau.

Joanne Elliott received her Ph.D. in 1950 from Cornell, entitled "On Some Singular Integral Equations of the Cauchy Type." After a year at Swarthmore, she was an assistant professor at Mount Holyoke College during 1952--56. During that period, she wrote the 1956 Transactions paper "Stochastic Processes Connected With Harmonic Functions," with W. Feller. In 1956, she relocated to Barnard College (teaching at Columbia University). By 1964, she had arrived at Douglass College of Rutgers, and was a Professor of Mathematics from 1965 until her retirement in 1991. She supervised five Ph.D. theses during 1967-1978. | |

Born in 1922, she received her Ph.D. in 1949 from the University of Michigan
(in differential equations). After 6 years in Massachussetts with the
Air Force, Wheaton College and American Optical, and post-docs at
Michigan and Princeton, she came to Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute
(now part of NYU) in 1957, being promoted to Professor
in 1960. In 1965, she joined the faculty of Rutgers College as a Professor.
She remained at Rutgers until her retirement in 1991.
She has 70 publications (most under the name of Jane Cronin).
From 1950 until 1972, all her publications were in mathematics
(differential equations modelling dynamics). Starting in 1973,
she began publishing in the field we now call biomathematics:
models of schizophrenia, cardiac fibers and cellular oscillations.
She was a well known lecturer, giving invited addresses at many
international conferences.

Born Tilla Savanuck in 1934 and married in 1953,
Tilla Klotz received her Ph.D. in 1959 from
New York University in differential geometry.
Her first position was at UCLA, where she was tenured in 1966.
After a year (1969-70) at Boston College, she came to
Douglass College to chair the Department of Mathematics (1970-73 and
1978-80). While in the middle of an active research life, she was
known as a crucial mentor for her younger colleages, especially her
younger female colleagues.
During her career, she published 46 papers under her three married names. She published 15 papers as Tilla Klotz during 1959-69. In 1969, she married John Milnor and published 25 papers as Tilla K. Milnor during 1969-1991. In 1992, she married Kive Weinstein and published 7 papers as Tilla Weinstein. She retired in 2000. The annual Tilla Weinstein Award is awarded for exceptional achievement in mathematics. | |
