Wall received his Ph.D. from the University of WisconsinMadison in
1927. He was a professor of pure mathematics at the University of Texas at
Austin (19461971) where he directed the doctoral work of over 60 students.
Wall employed the discoverybased method of teaching in his classroom. His
research interests included continued fractions, Hellinger integrals, group
theory, and infinite processes.
Collection consists of the mathematical notes, publications, and
teaching material of mathematician H. S. Wall (19021971). Also includes some
notes of J. S. MacNerney, one of Wall's students and a professor of mathematics
at the University of North Carolina.
