The Maxson Lecture Series honours Professor Emeritus Carl Maxson, who was a member of the Texas A&M Mathematics Department from 1969 until his retirement in 2002. This annual event is made possible by a generous endowment from Dr. Maxson's first doctoral student, Professor Ponnammal Natarajan of Chennai, India.
