    Alfred Young was a trained British mathematician who became a clergyman later in life. Most of his long series papers on invariant theory and the symmetric group were written while he was a clergyman.



    GILBERT DE B. ROBINSON was born in Toronto, and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1927. He received his Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1931. He has been a member of the staff on the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto from 1931 to the present. He was Visiting Professor at Michigan State University in 1953-54.
