John Hildebrant was an American mathematician and specialist in semigroup theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Hildebrant worked on topological semigroups under Brown's supervision and was awarded his Ph.D. in 1965 for his dissertation On Compact Uniquely Divisible Semigroups.
 After completing his doctorate, Hildebrant accepted an appointment at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1966.
 To give a small flavour of Hildebrant as a teacher, we list the contents of a course he gave at Louisiana State University on Foundations of Mathematics.
 Let me see you try that again." John was also extraordinarily supportive of his Ph.D. students, both during their dissertation research and well into their careers.
 John never hesitated to admit that he had "proven" his share of Friday's theorems.
 John's generosity was demonstrated in his work with students, his administrative work, and his relationship with colleagues.
