Joseph John Kohn is a Professor Emeritus of mathematics at Princeton University, where he researches partial differential operators and complex analysis. Kohn's father was Czech-Jewish architect Otto Kohn. After Nazi Germany invaded Czechoslovakia, he and his family emigrated to Ecuador in 1939. There Otto attended Colegio Americano de Quito. In 1945, Joseph moved to the United States, he studied at MIT and at Princeton University, where he obtained his PhD in 1956 under Donald Spencer.

Wendell Phillips Academy High School

Wendell Phillips Academy High School is a public 4–year high school located in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, United States. Phillips is part of the Chicago Public Schools district and is managed by the Academy for Urban School Leadership. Phillips is named for the noted American abolitionist Wendell Phillips. Phillips is noted as the first predominantly African-American high school in the City of Chicago. Opened in September 1904, the school building was designated a Chicago Landmark on May 7, 2003; the high school traces its history to 1875, when South Division High School was opened as the south side's first public high school. Phillips was established by Chicago Board of Education in 1900 to replace South Division, after community members petitioned for a new school due to the location being deemed "altogether unfit" and the need to provide a more modern building for the south side community. By 1903, the school was scheduled to open in September of that year. Due to labor issues between August and December of 1903, the last construction on the school was halted.

Construction resumed in January 1904 and was completed by May 1904. Constructed in the Classical Revival style, Phillips was designed by architect William B. Mundie. Phillips opened for the 1904–1905 school year on September 5, 1904; the school was named for Wendell Phillips, the staunch abolitionist and advocate for Native Americans. He was one of the leading members of the American Anti-Slavery Society; when its new Phillips campus opened in 1904, the school was still predominantly attended by the wealthy children of Chicago's south side mansions, but this soon changed. Changing demographics resulted from the Great Migration, by which millions of African–Americans left the rural South for northern and midwestern industrial cities, including Chicago. By 1907, 90 black students had enrolled at Phillips. Early yearbooks portray a racial mix in the student body, but by 1920 the school had become Chicago's first predominantly African-American high school. In 1924, The Chicago Board of Education created a junior high school within Phillips, serving seventh and eighth grades.

By 1928, Phillips student population exceeded the capacity of the school building in which the district instituted the use of portable classrooms and the implementation of two half-day shifts. In 1929, the Board of Education voted to build a new school in the Bronzeville neighborhood, naming it The New Wendell Phillips High School at 49th and Wabash Avenue due to overcrowding at Phillips. Economic conditions during the Great Depression slowed the work on the building. Shortly before the completion of the new building, Phillips "mysteriously" caught fire on January 28, 1935, making it necessary for the students to move to the new school in February 1935; the new school was named Jean Baptiste Point DuSable High School, after Chicago's first permanent non-native settler in April 1936. During the initial move to the new school, The board decided to only house sophomore and seniors in the new building due to limited space; the freshmen classes remained at the undamaged section of Phillips. A new wing was built on the Phillips site in late–1936, serving as an elementary school after junior high schools in Chicago were discontinued in 1933.

The new wing included a new assembly hall, swimming pool and chorus and band rooms. In November 1937, Several classrooms in the new wing of the school caught fire before its initial completion, repairs were made. During the 1940s, Phillips offered courses for adults. Phillips experienced overcrowding in the elementary wing of the school which led to a 20-classroom extension being built in 1944. By the early 1960s, Phillips students attended classes in three shifts due to overcrowding; the alumni association and principal Ernestine D. Curry established the Wendell Phillips High School Hall of Fame in 1979. Below is a list of individuals that have served as principal of Wendell Phillips Academy High School since the opening of the school in 1904. Phillips was used as the setting and shooting location for the movie Save the Last Dance, released in 2001. During the late–1920s, members of the school's winning basketball team was drafted by Abe Saperstein, a Chicago Park District employee, to form the nucleus of a group that became the Harlem Globetrotters.

They were called "The Savoy Big Five", taking their new name from Bronzeville's Savoy Ballroom. Those players included. Phillips is a High School Transformation and Advancement Via Individual Determination school and offers Advanced Placement courses as well as honors courses as part of its academic curriculum, it provides a positive learning environment through an academic curriculum promoting literacy and inquiry-based learning. AP courses are offered in U. S. history and English. Honors courses are offered in 15 subjects. Education To Careers programs are offered in fashion design, graphic communications, drafting. Phillips features a Junior Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps program and a health clinic to serve the needs of its students. Enrollment is open to students living in its attendance area. In addition to its longstanding sports program, Phillips offers student

Dúlamán

Dúlamán, is an Irish folk song. The text of the song relates to the Irish practice of gathering seaweed, done for various purposes, including as fertiliser and food. There are many contemporary versions of the song's melody. Among the best known settings is that of Clannad, who recorded it for their 1976 album Dúlamán. A slower melody was recorded by Altan on their 1993 album Island Angel. A contemporary musical setting of the song for choir was made by composer Michael McGlynn, featured in Endless Ocean: Blue World; the song title was used in 2016 as name of an Irish music & dance show called Dúlamán - Voice of the Celts. 1976 - Clannad - Dúlamán 1993 - Altan - Island Angel 1994 - Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin - A Stór Is A Stóirín 1995 - Anúna - Omnis Michael McGlynn composition. 1997 - Chanticleer - Wondrous Love Michael McGlynn composition. 1999 - Dónal Lunny - TV Programme on the privatisation of Telecom Éireann". 2001 - Cantus - Let Your Voice Be Heard 2007 - Celtic Woman - A New Journey — 2003 - Omnia - 3 2009 - Omnia - World of Omnia 2012 - Celtic Thunder - Voyage Michael McGlynn composition.

Robert Furber

Robert Furber was a British horticulturist and author, best known for writing the first seed catalogue produced in England. Furber was a member of the "English Society of Gardners", a group formed in 1724 to protect the reputations of plant growers by mutually agreeing to names for newly discovered plants. Furber contributed to the group's work, including collaborating on a book documenting the plants discovered and named by the group, he had a nursery in Kensington in London from around 1700 until his death. It was taken over by his colleague John Williamson others and survived until the 1840s. Furber's most notable work was Twelve Months of Flowers, published in 1730; the book was written as a catalog of plants and seeds, featured twelve detailed engravings of seasonal plants in bloom. Henry Fletcher produced each of the twelve hand-colored engravings from paintings by Pieter Casteels; each plant was numbered, with a list of the corresponding species names provided. More than 400 different species of plant were featured.

The plates were sold on a subscription basis for £1 5s in uncolored form, or £2 12s 6d for a colored version. The book was reprinted in 1982. In 1732, Furber produced a follow-up work entitled Twelve Months of Fruit. Like his previous collection of flowers, Twelve Months of Fruit featured twelve full-color plates with 364 different fruit; each plate focused on one month, showed the varieties of fruit that would ripen during that month. Other works by Furber include a 1732 book entitled The Flower Garden Displayed, a general-purpose book written for a wider audience, he had a position as an overseer of the poor in Kensington and was a churchwarden between 1725–6 and 1736–7. He married Mary Everton in about 1706 and they had one son, William, he was buried at St Mary Abbots on 1 September 1756
