Halmos "was a major figure in twentieth century mathematics known for his work in operator theory, ergodic theory, and functional analysis, as well as for mathematical exposition and teaching. He was also an avid amateur photographer and routinely documented the people in his life, including some of the world's most notable mathematicians.
