Biographical Note

Uta Caecilla Merzbach was born in Berlin, Germany, on February 9, 1933, to parents Margarete K. and Ludwig H. Merzbach. During World War II, the family was sent to Theresienstadt concentration camp until the camp was liberated in May of 1945. After a short time at a displaced persons camp in Deggendorf in Bavaria, the Merzbachs immigrated to the United States, settling in Georgetown, Texas, by 1946.

Having completed high school in Georgetown, Uta Merzbach attended Daniel Baker College of Southwestern University from 1948 to 1950, at which time she transferred to The University of Texas at Austin. As a student, she studied mathematics, earning her bachelor's degree with honors in the subject in 1952. She remained at the University of Texas and received her masters in mathematics in 1953, writing her thesis on topics in free algebra. From there, Uta Merzbach taught mathematics at the Radford School for Girls in El Paso, Texas, until 1956. While at Radford, she applied and was admitted to the Radcliffe College (in conjunction with Harvard University) Ph.D. program in Mathematics and History of Science. In 1963 she completed her studies at Harvard University, and in 1965 was awarded her Ph.D. for her dissertation "Quantity to Structure: Development of Modern Algebraic Concepts from Leibniz to Dedekind."

At the end of her study at Harvard, Uta Merzbach accepted a position at the Smithsonian Institute's Museum of History and Technology as an associate curator. She was later promoted to Curator in the Division of Physical Sciences, and remained in this position until 1988. She served as the Smithsonian's first curator of mathematical instruments and acquired a wide variety of collections for the museum.

Uta Merzbach also published several works on the history of mathematics and science. Some of her most notable works include Carl Friedrich Gauss: A Bibliography, Georg Scheutz and the First Printing Calculator, and major edits on Carl Boyer's A History of Mathematics. At the time of her death, Uta Merzbach was working on a biography of Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet, a famous nineteenth-century mathematician. (This work has been published posthumously).

Uta Merzbach died on June 27, 2017, at her home in Georgetown, Texas.

Scope and Contents

The Uta C. Merzbach papers consists of research notes, publication and manuscript drafts, personal records, correspondence, lectures and notes, travel records, notecards, 48 floppy disks, and two USB flash drives. It is organized into two major series: Professional and Personal. The Professional series primarily contains drafts and notes from Uta Merzbach's major publications. It also includes a vast collection of notecards pertaining to her research, unpublished notes and drafts, and notes from various meetings, symposia, and lectures Uta Merzbach gave and participated in. Finally, this series includes documents recording Uta Merzbach's travel and teaching positions throughout the years. The much smaller Personal series includes personal correspondence, materials from Uta Merzbach's personal education, notes on her collection of materials from the mathematician Olive C. Hazlett, and miscellaneous personal documents.
