Milliman Lectures at the University of Washington
|Wendell Alfred Milliman|
Wendell Alfred Milliman received his Mathematics degree from the University of Washington in 1926. He went on to enter the Actuarial profession and served as President of the Academy of Actuaries in 1968, and of the Actuarial Society of America in 1969. He founded the actuarial firm of Milliman & Robertson, based in Seattle, which is now one of the largest such firms in the world. The fund was enlarged in 1990 by a gift from this firm
The income from this endowed fund is used by the department to further the scholarly objects of the department. It enables the Department of Mathematics to invite prominent mathematicians to visit the University and participate in the mathematical life of the department.
The most visible benefit of the Fund has probably been the Department's very
successful series of annual Milliman Lectures.
