The following images are to be used for educational/instructional purposes only. Those denoted by an asterisk * are supplied by the Dibner Library of Science and Technology, The Smithsonian Institution Libraries, and their usage must conform to the Library’s rules and standards. Those denoted by a # sign come from the David Eugene Smith Collection at Columbia University. Finally, those marked by a % sign are sketches by Jemma Lorenat of Simon Fraser University. Note that portraits of mathematicians from earlier than the fifteenth century are only suggestive. We hope that readers will supply further portraits.
