The Samuel Beatty Fund promotes and encourages the study of Mathematics in the University of Toronto and throughout the Province of Ontario...
Samuel Beatty was born in 1881. In 1915, he graduated from the University of Toronto with a PhD and a dissertation entitled Extensions of Results Concerning the Derivatives of an Algebraic Function of a Complex Variable, with the help of his adviser, John Charles Fields. He was the first person to receive a PhD in mathematics from a Canadian university. In 1926, he published a problem in the American Mathematical Monthly, which formed the genesis for the Beatty sequence.
