1301. Norbert Wiener, 1894–1964

Norbert Wiener was born in Columbus, Mo., and is best known for his theory of cybernetics, which he explained in Cybernetics; or, Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine (1948). He won the National Book Award in 1965 for God and Golem, Inc. (1964).

1302. I am a mathematician; the later life of a prodigy, an autobiographical account of the mature years and career of Norbert Wiener and a continuation of the account of his childhood in Ex-prodigy. Garden City, N.Y., Doubleday, 1956.380 p. 56–5598 QA29.W497A35

This is a companion volume to Ex-Prodigy (1953) but can be read independently. Wiener begins with what he terms his "mature years," when he arrived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1919 at the age of 24. He remained there until his death in 1964. He concentrates on his career as scientist and mathematician and avoids the personal details of his life, which he preferred to keep private.
