The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) recently announced the 2nd Class of AWM Fellows, including researchers, mentors, and educators who are committed to creating a more inclusive mathematics community. Judy Green of Marymount University was selected among 23 others as a fellow “For her role as a founding member of the Association for Women in Mathematics; for her long-standing service; and for her groundbreaking scholarly contributions in documenting the lives and work of the U.S. women who earned Ph.D.s in mathematics before 1940,” according to the AWM website.
The mission of the AWM encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical science. AWM Fellows comprise a group of women with sustained commitment to the support and advancement of women in mathematical sciences.
Green is a Professor Emerita of Mathematics at Marymount University who retired from Marymount in 2007 after 18 years of service. Green earned her bachelor’s degree at Cornell University, she completed a master’s degree at Yale University, and earned her Ph.D. at the University of Maryland, College Park. She wrote Pioneering Women in American Mathematics: The Pre-1940 PhD’s (American Mathematical Society and London Mathematical Society, 2009), a biographical study of the first women in the U.S. to earn doctorates in mathematics.
AWM will recognize this class of AWM Fellows on January 16th, 2019 during the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore, Maryland.
