Caption: George Boole. Portrait of George Boole (1815- 1864), British mathematician. Boole, largely self-taught, was a school-teacher for several years before being appointed professor of mathematics at Queen's College, Cork, Ireland. In 1847 he developed a new form of algebra, the Boolean algebra, in an attempt to link the disciplines of mathematics and formal logic. His work was essential to the development of digital computers and also applied to other fields such as statistics and probability.
