Black Mathematician is Princeton Full Professor

Unlike Harvard, Brown, Cornell, M.I.T., Penn or Yale, Princeton University has, in September 2001, its first tenured African American Mathematician. Dr. William Massey, internationally renown researcher with 50 publications and a patent, well-known mentor of African American graduate students, winner of Bell Lab's W. Lincoln Hawkins Mentoring Excellence Award, NAM's Distinguish Service honoree, co-founder and co-organizer of CAARMS, and NAM Board member has been named Full Professor in the department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University.
