Paulus Gerdes, "Francis Allotey had told me that he and Daniel Akyeampong were the first Ghanaian doctors in mathematics (both 1966). Taylor's thesis advisor, John Trevor Lewis, got his own Ph.D. in 1955, so it may be that Taylor was a long time lecturer and did his masters in the 1940's."

Dr.Taylor (Ghanaian) lectured at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi for about 30 years until his untimely death in April,1977.


Year Deceased: 1977
