Charles Bradford Morrey Papers, 1933-1978, Archives of American Mathematics, Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, University of Texas at Austin.

Charles Bradfield Morrey, Jr. was born on July 23, 1907 in Columbus, Ohio. He was educated at Ohio State University and Harvard University (Ph.D.; 1931). After National Research Council fellowships at Princeton University and Rice University, he joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley (1933), retiring as professor emeritus in 1977. He died April 29, 1984.

His research included work in area of surfaces, calculus of variations, and elliptic partial differential equations. His work led to the solutions of the 19th and 20th problems of Hilbert.

Morrey's published work is represented by drafts and other material (18 in.) from several of his books. There are research notes and drafts (15 in.) some of which relate to his later work on elliptic equations. Records of Morrey's work with the AMS-MAA Joint Committee on Women in Mathematics (1972-1976; 3 in.) are also present.
