Biographical Note

The Legacy of H. S. Wall Project, established by the Educational Advancement Foundation, helps support research relating to the mathematician Hubert Stanley Wall (1902-1971). Wall received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1927. He taught pure mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) (1946-1971), where he directed the doctoral work of 66 students. Wall was a proponent of the "Moore Method," the discovery-based method of teaching developed by his colleague at UT, R. L. Moore.

For more information about the life and work of H. S. Wall, please consult the finding aid for the H. S. Wall Papers. More information about the Discovery Learning Project may be found at the following site: http://www.discovery.utexas.edu/dlp/index.html.
