In Memoriam

Selected funds for gifts made in Memoriam.

Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences

Dr. Dorrough began his education at the Courant Institute and served as a teacher, a professor and a lecturer throughout his career.  It seemed fitting that his legacy should contribute to the education of the next generation of mathematicians.

The selected fund at the institute is the Courant Alumni Fellowship Fund, a general scholarship account for the Institute.

One thought on “In Memoriam”

  1. I was privileged to meet Douglas, or the remnants of Douglas. Ever a gentleman, he maintained a sense of play to the end. And, yes: participated in a communion that fills my eyes with tears. Truly a life well lived. So sad the remnants are gone; but he was much more, and that will live on.
