## Why Is Jerald Ericksen Influential?

(Suggest an Edit or Addition)According to Wikipedia, Jerald LaVerne Ericksen was an American mathematician specializing in continuum mechanics. Biography Ericksen was born in Portland, Oregon. His father Adolf worked at a Portland creamery and became adept at judging the quality of butter. Later his father acquired a small creamery in Vancouver, Washington where the family moved. Jerald's brother A. Erwin was born there, and Jerald helped out in the creamery.
