Photo Finish for the 2023 Henderson Medal
In the first time in 10 years, two undergraduate students, Yizhou (Josie) Gu and Connor Magoon, earned the 2023 Henderson Medal. The Archibald Henderson Mathematics Medal was established in 1931 and named after the late Archibald Henderson, a mathematician, teacher, literary critic, biographer, and historian. For fifty years Henderson was a member of the Department of Mathematics at Chapel Hill, first as student, then as full professor. This medal is awarded by the Department to undergraduate students for excellence in Mathematics: specifically in demonstrating a high degree of mathematical ability and the greatest promise of originality in the field. Congratulations Josie and Connor!
