Lefschetz, Solomon

[lefshets]

(1884--1972)

Mathematician, born in Moscow, Russia. He studied engineering in Paris before emigrating to the USA. After losing both his hands in an industrial accident (1910), he was forced to abandon engineering, and turned to mathematics. He took his doctorate in 1911, taught at Kansas University (1913--25), and studied topology at Princeton (1925--53), becoming the leading topologist of his generation in the USA.
