George Boole

“George Boole (b. Lincoln, England, 1815; d. Cork, Ireland, 1864), see Fig. 1, was one of those rarities in an era of increasing specialization: the self-taught man who followed his own path to the penetration of territory untouched by his contemporaries. Due to the family’s sparse financial resources, Boole’s formal education was limited to elementary school and a short stint in a commercial school. Beyond this he was almost totally self-educated.”
