Dr. Bennington P. Gill

Bennington P. Gill is a professor emeritus of mathematics at City College. He was a treasurer of the American Mathematical Society and chairman of the New York section of the Mathematical Association of America. Martin Davis, being a student of Bennington Gill, cites him as a major influence for his mathematical career.

In 1942, Bennington Gill gave an interesting podcast describing the use of mathematics in World War II which was archived by the NY Public radio.

He graduated from City College (1917) with a B.S. degree in mathematics and received his Ph.D from Columbia University (1930).
