Person: TausskyTodd, Olga
Olga TausskyTodd was an Austrian born mathematician who worked on algebraic number theory and matrix theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Olga received the top or second top grade for arithmetic but her favourite subjects were essay writing and grammar.
 When she was 14 years old Olga entered the high school where she spent a year before studying at the Gymnasium.
 At Vienna Olga was taught by Furtwängler, Hahn, Wirtinger, Menger, Helly and others, while she was a fellow student of Gödel.
 Given leave of absence from her College to undertake war work, TausskyTodd worked at the National Physical Laboratory ay Teddington between 1943 and 1946.
 During this time TausskyTodd wrote several papers which were published by the Ministry of Aircraft Production in London.
 These papers she published under the name Olga Todd, while most of her other papers she wrote under the name Olga Taussky, with a few latter papers written under the name Olga TausskyTodd.
 In 1947 Olga and Jack when to the United States, with the original intention of spending a year there, and they worked at the National Bureau of Standards' National Applied Mathematics Laboratory after spending a while at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton working on von Neumann's computer project.
 In 1957 Olga and Jack both accepted appointments at the California Institute of Technology.
 Olga's bestknown and most influential work was in the field of matrix theory, though she also made important contributions to number theory.
 Finally we should mention some of the many honours TausskyTodd received for her mathematical contributions.
 TausskyTodd served on the Council of the London Mathematical Society (194647 and she served on the Council of the American Mathematical Society (197278).
Born 30 August 1906, Olmütz, AustroHungarian Empire (now Olomouc, Czech Republic). Died 7 October 1995, Pasadena, California, USA.
