Brother Thomas Dupre' is our special guest speaker this week. He wrote his dissertation in 1986 on "The 'New Mathematics' Controversy". The dissertation was directed by Ken Travers. Peter Braunfeld was the chairperson of his committee. Though Max Beberman had passed away by that time, Dupre's dissertation was based on interviews with many of the people who had been active in the University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics.
Brother Dupre' is Associate Professor in Mathematics/Computer Science at Lewis University.
