Times Obituaries

Obituaries in The Times of London


The Times has been published in London from 1785. It is well-known for its obituaries of prominent people, mainly British though many important foreigners are also included. About 200 of the mathematicians in our archive have such obituaries. For technical reasons we are only able to reference the obituaries from 1900 to 1985 and from 1996 to 2003.
