Wedderburn, Joseph (Henry Maclagan)


Mathematician, born in Forfar, Angus, E Scotland, UK. He studied at Edinburgh University, visited Leipzig, Berlin, and Chicago, then returned to Edinburgh as a lecturer (1905--9). In 1909 he went to Princeton, and settled there after World War 1 until retiring in 1945. His work on algebra includes two fundamental theorems known by his name, one on the classification of semi-simple algebras, the other on finite division rings.
