Mathematics teaching at Colorado College has also been handled
by faculty other than those specially appointed for the purpose.
Some mathematics courses in the 1920's were taught by the professor
of forestry, for example. When Florian Cajori was in Europe
during 1914 (to participate in the tercentenary celebrations of
Napier's logarithms), he left his mathematics teaching in the
charge of Albert Ellingwood, who had recently joined the faculty
as an assistant professor of political science. Ellingwood (1887-1934)
was an outstanding CC graduate of the class of 1910, and was then
a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. He was a member of the faculty from
1914 to 1919, when he moved on in the post-Slocum diaspora and was
professor of political science at the University of Illinois at the
time of his death.
