A mathematician and all his functions: The untold story of Lucien Hibbert.
Abstract: Even with his achievements in mathematics, academia, politics, and international affairs, Lucien Hibbert is nearly unknown, even in his native land of Haiti. Our aim is to present a biography of him that includes his family ties, his education, his PhD thesis, and his work in government. His friendships with some of the most recognizable French mathematicians and how they contributed to his efforts in higher education in Haiti are also explored.
