Born on December 17th , 1900, Northamptonshire, England

She was first educated by a governess, but then Mary was sent away to multiple schools starting at age 11, including Godolphin, in Salisbury. Although she went to school for a good amount of time, she was only encouraged to learn mathematics in her last couple years of high school.

Her father was a rector. This is a member of the clergy who has power in the church.

Her younger brother Frederick was a Rugbeian. (Someone who went to a Rugby school) He ended his career as deputy chairman of the British Steel Corporation.
In 1919 Mary Cartwright went to St Hugh's College, in Oxford, to read mathematics.

Mary Cartwright went on to obtain a First in 1923, only the second year in which women took Final degrees at Oxford.

She returned to Oxford in 1928 for her D.Phil in mathematics under the supervision of G. H. Hardy and E. C. Titchmarsh, receiving the degree in 1930.

Her thesis was on "The Zeros of Integral Functions of Special Types." This work was published into two volumes. This contribution allowed her to become a lecturer at cambridge university.

She also used Aflor's technique of conformal mapping to prove functions.
An en­tire func­tion of or­der p has at most 2p asymp­to­mat­ic val­ues. This be­came known as Cartwright's The­or­em.

She also proved the chaos theory with a team of scientists
The thesis on zeros of integral functions and the Cartwright's theorem were and still are used today to teach many students in college about these certain functions. This is how many people use her discovery today.

When Mary was alive, she discovered how to make improvements to the radio amplifier that was used in WWII. This made communication during the war a lot easier.

Born on December 17, 1900.

October 29, 1929 was the start of the great depression.

Theory of "Zeros of Integral Functions" was discovered in 1930

WWII began on September 1, 1939 .

Mary made improvements on the radio amplifier during WWII on 1935

Civil rights movment began in the 1960s.

Mary Returned to Cambridge where she was an editor for the papers of G.H. Hardy. And she died their in 1998.
