Dr. Judy Green served as a faculty member at Rutgers University in Camden before coming to Marymount as Professor of Mathematics in 1989. She retired in 2007 as Professor Emeritus. She now serves as a Behind-the-Scenes Volunteer at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
Her primary field of interest while at Marymount was the history of American women in mathematics. She co-authored a book on that subject, Pioneering Women in American Mathematics: The Pre-1940 PhDs, and maintains a website in connection with that book: www.ams.org/bookpages/hmath-34
Since the publication of her book, her research has centered on objects in the mathematical collections of the Smithsonian Institution. These include the mathematical paintings of the children’s author Crockett Johnson and on various models of mathematical surfaces.
She is a founding member of the Association for Women in Mathematics and and served as Treasurer and Vice President. She also served as Vice President of the American Association of University Professors and on the Council of the American Mathematical Society.
