Bio/Historical Note: The Shuttleworth Mathematical Society was designed to give students interested in mathematics an opportunity to meet in an informal setting, and was open to all students who had completed one math class and were registered in a second. The Society was originally formed in November 1916 as the University Mathematical Society. It was renamed in honour of Roy Eugene Shuttleworth, a brilliant honours student who had been the first president of the organization. Shuttleworth was born in 1896 in Leavenworth, Washington. He was a student at the University of Saskatchewan. He served as a private with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (Eastern Ontario Regiment). Shuttleworth died in combat during World War I on 26 August 1918 at Vimy Ridge, France. His name is inscribed on the Vimy Memorial. The society has been inactive for many years.
