Person: Elliott, Edwin Bailey
Edwin Elliott was an English mathematician whose work included algebra, algebraic geometry, synthetic geometry, elliptic functions and invariant theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 After outstanding achievements at university, Elliott became a Fellow and Mathematical Tutor of Queen's College, Oxford, in 1874.
 In addition to his Fellowship at Queen's College, Elliott was appointed a lecturer in mathematics at Corpus Christi College in Oxford in 1884.
 These appointments came to an end in 1892 when Elliott became the first Waynflete professor of Pure Mathematics.
 The Waynflete chair came with a Fellowship at Magdalen College so Elliott was again attached to his old College.
 Elliott held the Waynflete chair for 29 years until his retirement in 1921.
 In the book Elliott presented a wealth of material on invariant theory which had been developed on the Continent of Europe, but he presented it in a style which was more familiar to English mathematicians familiar with the work of Cayley and Sylvester.
 It was a popular book and, in 1913, Elliott published a second revised edition.
 All ageing mathematicians should be particularly pleased to learn that a second piece of work by Elliott, which was again of major importance, was his contribution to the theory of integral equations which he made after he retired.
 Elliott wrote well and he always produced clear rigorous arguments.
 Outside mathematics, Elliott had many interests.
Born 1 June 1851, Oxford, England. Died 21 July 1937, Oxford, England.
