In Memoriam Ron Graham

Che Graham  - Ronald Graham, his wife Fan Chung Graham and Paul Erdős in Japan 1986. Ron Graham, 1935-2020 was one of the first recipients of the Euler medal in 1993 .  At that time he was a University Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Rutgers University, Adjunct Director for Research at Information Sciences Division AT&T Bell Labs, and President of the American Mathematical Society.   He worked at Bell Laboratories until 1999, starting as director of information sciences and ending his tenure there as chief scientist. Graham then joined the faculty at the University of California, San Diego and later became chief scientist at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, a joint operation between the university and the University of California, Irvine.  In 2003-2004, he served as President of the Mathematical Association of America.   Graham was a frequent host and collaborator with Erd ő s, and in
