    Notes:

    His daughter Elizabeth's obituary in the Marin Independent Journal (20 Sep 1992, reproduced at www.sfgenealogy.com/boards/mcobits/archive4/5426.html) calls him "a prominent San Francisco attorney", but also refers to him, apparently in error, as "Eugene Arnold." Elizabeth's son Tom Whitmore confirms that his name was George Stanleigh Arnold, and adds that he was a Yale man known to friends as "Big Stan."

    The daughter of a prominent San Francisco attorney, Eugene Arnold, she attended the Katherine Branson School in Ross and graduated first in her class in 1932. The school later named a day in her honor after she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa at Vassar College in her junior year.

    After graduating from Vassar in 1937, Dr. Arnold earned her Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1941.

    During World War II, Dr. Arnold was recruited by the Navy and worked on a team of cryptographers cracking Japanese codes, for which she received a Meritorious Civilian Service Award.

    In the 1960s, Dr. Arnold worked on machine language translation at Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. Inc.

    After her retirement in 1969, Dr. Arnold helped establish a recycling center in Los Altos and worked with Wildlife Rescue, helping injured animals.

    Dr. Arnold is survived by her husband of 46 years, Dr. William Francis Whitmore of Los Altos; four sons, Charles Whitmore of Washington, D.C., Edward Whitmore of San Francisco, Thomas Whitmore of Oakland and Peter Whitmore of Victoria, B.C. Also surviving are her brothers, George Stanleigh Arnold of Kentfield, Peter Arnold of Grass Valley and Anthony Arnold of Novato.

    =====

    Note that the above obituary is in error in two respects. Her father was George Stanleigh Arnold, not Eugene Arnold; and her family nickname was "Bibba", not "Bibbs."

    Her page at the Mathematics Genealogy Project is here, showing her to be a generation of advisors closer to Felix Klein than her husband was.

    Elizabeth married William Francis Whitmore 1 Nov 1946. William (son of Charles Edward Whitmore and Elizabeth Manning Gardiner) was born 6 Jan 1916, Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts; was buried 6 Jan 1996. [Group Sheet]
