New Facebook page provides preview, supplement to Marina v.N. Whitman's forthcoming memoirs

June 29, 2012

Many know the Ford School's Marina Whitman as an accomplished economist, business executive, and professor. But before she began her own impressive career she was Marina von Neumann, the only daughter of John von Neumann, who was often hailed as the greatest mathematician of the 20th century and even as the greatest scientist after Einstein. Marina's memoir, "The Martian's Daughter," will be published in September 2012. She reveals intimate details about the famed scientist and explores how the cosmopolitan environment in which she was immersed, the demanding expectations of her parents and her own struggles to emerge from the shadow of a larger-than-life parent shaped her life and work.
