*George Carrier (1919-2002) was the T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Mathematics at Harvard, and one of the pre-eminent applied mathematicians of his generation. He had a special talent for describing complicated physical phenomena mathematically, and did so with great facility over a wide range of problems that included fluid dynamics, elasticity, combustion and natural hazards.
