Tibor Radó, 1895-1965
One of the most prominent of the Hungarian mathematicians to come to the US in the post-World War I period. He was appointed professor at Ohio State in 1930 in conjunction with the establishment of a graduate program in mathematics. He served as chairman of the department in the postwar period and was named research professor in 1948. He is known for his solution of Plateau's problem in 1930.
