THE COX-TALBOT LECTURE
What is the "Cox-Talbot Lecture" Series?
The Cox-Talbot Lecture was inaugurated in 1990 in honor of the first and fourth African-Americans to earn the doctoral degree in mathematics.
Each year NAM invites a mathematical scientist or educator who exemplifies the spirit of Cox and Talbot in both personal achievement and service to the mathematical community. The hour-long lecture takes place during the annual NAM Banquet as part of the Joint Mathematics Meetings.
