= Ian Cassidy's Academic Genealogy
This page lists my academic genealogy, which can be traced back to Friedrich Leibniz in the 17th Century. I found most of the information prior to Thomas Caughey on [https://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/ The Mathematics Genealogy Project]. However, I should point out that Thomas Caughey may not have had an advisor while he was at Caltech. He acknowledges Charles DePrima and Donald Hudson in his dissertation, but does not specifically cite either as being his advisor. \n \n
