About George Campbell De Morgan


GEORGE CAMPBELL DE MORGAN (1841-1867)

A thoroughly committed mathematician, George Campbell De Morgan was the third child of Augustus and Sophia De Morgan. He attended University College School from 1856 to 1857 and then UCL, where he gained numerous distinctions, winning the first prize in his father's class, a valuable scholarship, and the University of London gold medal when he took his M.A. in 1863. From 1863-65 he was a mathematics master at the School, also examining in mathematics for the University of London. Nicknamed 'the younger Bernoulli', in reference to the fact that his father too was an able mathematician, George's health was never strong. He presented only one paper to the LMS On the development of a certain class of functions read on 13 December 1866. His death of consumption in October 1867 devastated the senior De Morgan and robbed the world of a mathematician of very great promise.
