Person: Moser, Leo
Leo Moser was an Austrianborn Canadian mathematician who worked in number theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Leo attended primary school in Winnipeg, where his parents had set up home, and continued his secondary education there.
 Remaining in Winnipeg, Leo then entered the University of Manitoba to study mathematics.
 For his doctoral studies, Moser went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
 Alfred Brauer's interests were in number theory and so this was the area in which Moser began his research.
 Even before he had submitted his dissertation, Moser had several papers published.
 Moser was appointed at Texas Technical College, but shortly after this he was offered a position in the University of Alberta, and he moved back to Canada to take up the job in 1951.
 Although the department was small and had no separate building to itself, Leo Moser was the centre of activity discussing problems with any one who cared to listen.
 Professor Moser was very hospitable and the evening parties at his home were always a treat.
 Moser loved the problem based type of mathematical questions.
 We mention above the heart problems which afflicted Moser all his life.
Born 11 April 1921, Vienna, Austria. Died 9 February 1970, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
