Person: Hirsch, Arthur
Arthur Hirsch was a German mathematician (born in Königsberg) who worked on differential equations and hypergeometric functions.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Hirsch studied mathematics, physics and philosophy in his hometown and in Berlin.
 Hirsch acted as coadvisor and second examiner for a number of PhD theses between 1916 and 1926, but none of the PhD candidates became influential in mathematics.
 In 1909 Hirsch was listed as Deputy Head in the School Board minutes for the first time; he was reelected every other year until 1921.
 Hirsch published a few papers in Mathematische Annalen, primarily on differential equations and integrals.
 Hirsch was a member of the Swiss Mathematical Society; he also attended some of the German Mathematical Society's annual meetings.
 Hirsch joined the organising committee of the first International Congress of Mathematicians in December 1896.
 At the meeting on 21 January 1897 Hurwitz and Rudio suggested that Hirsch join the reception committee (alongside Burkhardt and Gubler), partly in order to help deal with the congress publications.
 Like his colleagues Dumas and Franel, Hirsch was on the organising committee for the 1932 ICM in Zürich, but did not give a talk during the congress.
 Arthur Hirsch retired in 1936.
Born 19 July 1866, Königsberg, Prussia (now Kaliningrad, Russia). Died 18 November 1948, Zürich, Switzerland.
