Person: Mcshane, Edward James
Edward J McShane was an American mathematician noted for his work in the calculus of variations and integration theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 After attending school in New Orleans, McShane entered Tulane University.
 After completing his first degrees (for he had two!), McShane continued to study at Tulane for his Master's degree in mathematics while teaching mathematics as an instructor.
 With the award of a Master's degree from Tulane in 1927, McShane went to the University of Chicago to undertake studies for his doctorate.
 McShane spent part of the following two years at Princeton, part at Ohio State, part at Harvard and part at Chicago.
 In 1935 McShane was appointed to a professorship at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville, where, except for temporary appointments elsewhere, he was to remain for the rest of his life.
 McShane had been asked to complete a questionnaire.
 McShane is famous for his work in the calculus of variations, MooreSmith theory of limits, the theory of the integral, stochastic differential equations, and ballistics.
 In 1974, the year he retired and was made Professor Emeritus at Virginia, McShane published Stochastic calculus and stochastic models which again reflected his work on the mathematical setting for quantum mechanics.
 McShane was much involved with both the American Mathematical Society and with the Mathematical Association of America.
Born 10 May 1904, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Died 1 June 1989, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.
