Stanisław Marcin Ulam (1909 -1984) was a Polish mathematician who earned a PhD from the Polytechnic National University in Lviv in 1933. Professor Ulam was a member of the internationally renowned Lviv School of Mathematics and co-author of the Scottish Book. Just before the breakout of the Second World War, he traveled to the USA to join the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Several American universities appointed him associate professor (e.g. University of Wisconsin, University of Colorado, University of Florida).
