Biographical Note
Emil Grosswald was born in Bucharest, Rumania, on December 15, 1912. He
received a Masters' degree from the University of Bucharest (1933) and
continued his studies in Paris and Montpelier. Grosswald arrived in the United
States in 1946 and received his Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania
(1950). In 1952, after a lectureship at the University of Saskatoon and a year
at the Institute for Advanced Study, he joined the Department of Mathematics at
the University of Pennsylvania. Grosswald joined the faculty of Temple
University (Philadelphia) in 1968, retiring and becoming professor emeritus in
1980. He has held visiting professorships at the Technicon (Haifa, 1980-81),
Swarthmore College (1982), and the University of Pennsylvania (1984). He died
on April 11, 1989.

Grosswald was an analyst, specializing in analytic number theory. His
association with Hans Rademacher, also on the faculty of the University of
Pennsylvania, led to Grosswald's editing of Rademacher's

Topics in Analytic Number Theory (1973) and
Collected Papers (1974).
Scope and Contents
The papers contain substantial correspondence (1942-88; 3 ft.),
including correspondence with P. Bateman, H. Rademacher, J.A. Shohat, C.L.
Siegel, and many others. There are manuscripts and letters related to articles
and books by, and edited by, Emil Grosswald (1942-88; 15 in.). Grosswald's
teaching and lecture notes are included (2 ft.), together with a substantial
body of notes on unpublished research (2 ft.). Also included are records of
Grosswald's work on the Mathematical Association of America's Board of
Governors (1965-68; 4 in.) and the Ford Award Committee (1970-77; 1 in.).
