Pictures from the Gathering

Farewell Tom Rodgers, founder, visionary and force behind the Gathering For Gardner. He has added a lot to the world and his legacy will go on and spread. In that spirit, we all hope you’ll join in the Celebration of Mind, maybe hosting your own event sometime around Martin Gardner’s birthday each year on October 21!

I, like so many others, am deeply indebted to Tom; through his generosity (and a fair amount of his typical forceful prodding!) he enabled me and my collaborator Eugene Sargent to begin working together making large mathematical sculptures. Here are a few pictures of those creations. Until we next meet, Tom, thank you.
