THE CLAYTOR-WOODARD LECTURE
What is the "Claytor-Woodard Lecture" Series?
The Claytor-Woodard Lecture was inaugurated in 1980 in honor of the second and third African-Americans to earn the doctoral degree in mathematics.
Each year NAM invites a mathematical scientist or educator who exemplifies the spirit of Claytor and Woodard in their concerted efforts to advance mathematical research for underrepresented American minorities. The hour-long address takes place during the Joint Mathematics Meetings.
