Henderson completed his doctorate at the University of
WisconsinMadison in 1964 under the direction of R. H. Bing, and went on to
teach at Cornell University. His research interests include geometric topology
and mathematics education.
This collection consists of the mathematics course notes taken by
David Henderson while a graduate student at the University of
WisconsinMadison, ca. 19611964. Most of the courses were in topology. Also
includes one photograph (electronic printout) of a wedding group, ca. 1900 with
connections to American mathematics.
