"One of the wonders of mathematics is you go somewhere in the world and you meet other mathematicians, and it is like one big family. This large family is a wonderful joy."
      Louis Nirenberg, in an interview in the Notices of the AMS, April 2002.
      Louis Nirenberg was born in Hamilton, Ontario on February 28, 1925. He was attracted to physics as a high school student in Montreal while attending the Baron Byng School. He completed a major in Mathematics and Physics at McGill University. Having met Richard Courant, he went to graduate school at NYU and what would become the Courant Institute. There he completed his PhD degree under the direction of James Stoker. He was then invited to join the faculty and has been there ever since. He was one of the founding members of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and is now an Emeritus Professor.
