Bursill-Hall was educated – at least in some sense – in France, America, Canada, and England; most of his learning coming from dubious public houses in Devon and he ended up at Cambridge University, and has managed to avoid the workhouse or madhouse ever since. He has taught undergraduate courses in history of mathematics and most aspects of history of science at Cambridge and a few other places foolish enough to invite him to talk. It is not known where his o ff button is, but chocolate usually shuts him up temporarily. He is currently 39 years old, and has been for many years.

This talk is part of the Trinity Mathematical Society series.
