Paul R. Halmos, eminent mathematician and brilliant expositor, is also a snapshot addict. Between 1943 and 1988, Halmos photographed mathematicians, their spouses, their brothers and sisters and other relatives, their offices, their dogs, and their carillon towers. From the 6000 or so photographs in his collection, Halmos has chosen about 600 for this book. The pictures are candid shots showing mathematicians just being themselves. The accompanying captions, in addition to identifying the subjects, contain anecdotes and bits of history that reveal Halmos's inimitable wit, charm, and insight. This delightful collection of mathematical memorabilia has become a favorite browsing book as well as a valuable historical record. It is now available in a paperback edition.
