|Last month [July, 1999], the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley, CA, hosted the Olga Taussky Todd Celebration of Careers in Mathematics for Women. The conference showcased the research of outstanding women in mathematics and highlighted various issues of concern to young women entering the mathematical research communty. The career of Olga Taussky Todd (1906-1995) served as a worthy model for the participants... Though Taussky's main interest was initially number theory, she was to become what she later termed "a torchbearer" for another branch of mathematics known as matrix theory.|
