Maine Mathematician. Marston Morse, from Waterville, Maine, was a pioneer in Differential Topology. He spent most of his career as a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, upstairs from Albert Einstein. His tremendously influential life’s work is a body of knowledge known as Morse Theory. For some insight into his childhood in Maine, see his essay on Mathematics and the Arts.
