##### About The Calvin and Jean Long Distinguished Lecture in Mathematics

The Calvin and Jean Long Distinguished Lecture in Mathematics brings internationally renowned mathematics scholars to the WSU campus each fall. The lecture honors former department chairman (1970 - 1978) and professor emeritus Calvin Long and his wife Jean who arrived at WSU, then WSC, in the fall of 1956. After working in the Mathematics Department at WSU for 36 years he retired in 1992.

This evening lecture is geared toward community members and members without a deep mathematical background. It is generally followed by a more in-depth department colloquium the following day.

The campus community and public are cordially invited to attend both events.
