**This includes Applied Mathematics and Statistics Doctorates**

We have very good records of our mathematics graduates. A number of mathematics \education students are supported by the mathematics department, but we do not have as good records of who graduated and when. The Mathematics Education department\ may have records. The number by the first few students is their number in the total\ doctoral population; Earl Barnes received the 104th doctorate awarded by the mathematics department.

Many of them, as well as some mathematics education graduates of the University of Maryland, are in a picture taken after NAM's Cox-Talbot lecture at the AMS meeting in Baltimore in January, 2003.

Several of these students were instrumental in nominating me for an award sponsored by AAAS. Jim Gates of the Physics Department won an award at the same time. The plaques were presented in San Francisco on February 17, 2007. This is the announcement of my award ; here is the announcement of Jim Gates' award . These pictures were taken at the ceremony by my son Malcolm Johnson. Here is a pictures of Jim and I before the ceremony , and another with Gary May, another mentor award\ winner in the background.

Here is a picture of Jim Gates receiving the award and a picture while he was delivering his acceptance address.

Here is a picture of me during my talk , along with a picture of my receiving the award ( Left to right: AAAS President John P. Holdren, Raymond L. Johnson, AAAS Chief Executive Officer Alan I. Leshner) .- Go back to Home Page
