E.S. & A.C. Everett Memorial Scholarship - Mathematics
This scholarship was established in memory of Emeritus Professor Edward Simpson Everett and his wife, Amanda Cowen Everett, in 1968. Professor Everett, born in 1883, spent one year (1900-1901) at Trinity College before becoming an editorial writer and cartoonist in Rhode Island, including several years with the Providence Journal. In 1910 he moved to Chicago where he continued to work as a journalist and cartoonist. He also spent time as a staff member for Dan Beard, a pioneer in founding the Boy Scouts of America.
In 1911 he entered the University of Michigan and received his B.A. in 1914. He continued his education at the University of Michigan and received his Master’s (1915) and Ph.D. (1921) in English. In 1922, he joined the University of Michigan as an assistant professor in the Department of Rhetoric (renamed the Department of English in 1930). He retired from the Department of English in 1953 and died in 1967.
Professor Everett’s area of scholarly interest was the Victorian novel, particularly concerning the works of Charles Dickens. His professional concern regarding the teaching of composition is reflected in his co-authorship of The Michigan Deskbook of English, published in 1935.
Professor Everett’s loyalty to his alma mater is attested by his generous contributions to the Phoenix Project and to the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
This scholarship, established in the memory of Professor Everett and his wife, is intended to provide financial support for graduate students.
Edwin Wilkinson Miller Prize
This prize was established by the Department of Mathematics in honor of Professor Edwin Wilkinson Miller shortly after his sudden death in 1942. Professor Miller, born in 1905, graduated with a BA from the University of Michigan in 1928 and continued on to graduate studies at Harvard University. He soon discovered that he preferred the atmosphere of the University of Michigan and returned to complete his graduate studies; he received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 1930 and subsequently joined the Department as an instructor.
He remained in the Department (instructor, 1930-1936; assistant professor, 1936-1941, associate professor, 1941-1942) until his death. Throughout his professional career, Professor Miller demonstrated excellence in both the classroom and in his research endeavors in topology and function theory.
The prize, established in his memory, is intended to provide financial support for graduate students.

Gabrielle & Sophie Rainich Fellowship
The Gabrielle & Sophie Rainich Fellowship was established in 1964 by Emeritus Professor G.Y. Rainich in memory of his mother, Gabrielle, and his wife, Sophie.
George Yuri Rainich, née Yuri Germanovich Rabinovich in 1886 in Odessa, Russia, studied at the Universities of Novorossia, Göttingen, and Munich. He taught at the Odessa School of Mathematics, where he graduated in 1904, the University of Kazan, and the University of Novorossia before coming to the United States in 1923.
At that time, Rabinovich changed his name to Rainich. He became a Johnston Scholar at Johns Hopkins University before joining the faculty at the University of Michigan in 1926, where he continued for 30 years until his retirement in 1956. Professor Rainich died in 1968.
Rainich’s best known work was in relativity, particularly a series of papers in the 1920’s where he showed that the mathematics of the general theory that Einstein used as a model for gravitation also supplied one for electromagnetism. He also published an influential book on the subject of relativity theory. Within the Department he was universally regarded as a superb teacher and expositor and served as the Chair of the Doctoral Committee for many years.
Noted for his interest in and support of graduate students, Rainich established the Gabrielle & Sophie Rainich Fellowship in memory of his mother and wife in 1964. His mother, Gabrielle, succeeded in leaving the Soviet Union in 1930. She was the author of the first Russian-English mathematical dictionary, published in 1950, and died in 1953. His wife, Sophie, was a dentist and died in 1963.
The fellowship is intended to provide financial support for graduate students. The awards are dispersed to the discretion of the Chairman.
