Access to materials

This collection is open for research; access requires at least 48 hours advance notice, with the following exception:

Patrons may not access original CD; use copy of files must be created prior to patron use.

The records of the North Carolina State University Department of Mathematics contain brochures, announcements, newsletters, and reports relating to the operations of the department.

Mathematics courses have been taught at NC State since classes were first held in 1889. J. H. Kinealy was the first professor of mathematics and practical mechanics. In 1906, Robert E. L. Yates began the first head of the Department of Mathematics. In 1960, the department became one of the first departments of the School of Physical and Applied Mathematics (now College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences).

Biographical/historical note

Mathematics courses have been taught at NCSU since classes were first held in 1889. J. H. Kinealy was the first professor of mathematics and practical mechanics. In 1906, the Mathematics Department at North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (A&M College, later North Carolina State University) was founded. The department consisted of Robert E. Lee Yates, who became the first department head, and three instructors--Carroll L. Mann, John A. Park, and Michael Richardson.

In 1928, the Mathematics Department moved to the Engineering School. The department remained in the School of Engineering until 1960 when it joined with the Chemistry, Physics, and Experimental Statistics departments to form the School of Physical Sciences and Applied Mathematics. The school became the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 1987.

In 2013 the Department of Mathematics became part of NC State's new, comprehensive College of Sciences.
