Thomas Craig received his Ph.D. under the direction of J. J. Sylvester at Johns Hopkins University for a dissertation on "The representation of one surface upon another; and on some points in the theory of the curvature of surfaces." He was one of the four to receive his degree on this day (the philosopher Josiah Royce was another). These were the first Ph.D.s granted by JHU, a university founded in 1876 in Baltimore, Maryland, to advance graduate education.
