Conceptual Analysis

  • C. Truesdell


The honor you give me today is double: The first time you invite me to address you indebts me to you also for a splendid award. The occasion is twice doubly dear because it lets me say a little about two men connected with the prize: George D. Birkhoff himself, and a previous recipient, James Serrin. Both of these men have made an impress upon American and foreign styles in mathematics which I know to be healthful and hope will be lasting.
