About Bill

Bill Mahavier, circa 1972
 W. "Bill" Mahavier, circa 1972

Mahavier was a first generation Moore student and a respected topologist, having published papers at the request of Kuratowski and Stone. Speaking to me about my father’s teaching, Roy “Tom” Jacobs, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas, once told me, “I took courses under R.L. Moore and under your father. I believe that your father understood the Moore Method better than Moore himself.”
