Papers, 

Dates: 
19331978 

Abstract: 
Morrey's 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 AMSMAA Joint Committee on Women in
Mathematics (19721976; 3 in.) are also present.

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.
