John Todd 1911 - 2007

Jack Todd passed away Thursday, June 21, 2007 at his home in Pasadena at the age of 96. He has been an enormously beneficial presence at the Caltech Math department for many decades, both as a professor of mathematics and as a benefactor. John and his late wife, Olga Taussky-Todd, have given to the department in many ways. Most prominently, they set up an endowed fund for distinguished visitors and just recently Jack donated funds to the Math department which we will use for the benefit of graduate students. In recognition of their generosity to the Institute, Caltech named the Taussky-Todd instructorships in mathematics in their honor. These instructorships currently constitute half of our postdoc size.

For more information on Jack Todd's life please take a look at the Caltech press release.
