HERE is a history of Cliff’s early years (a summary of life prior to marriage)
HERE is video of mathematics and milling efforts of Professor Clifford Long with colleagues Tom Hern and Vic Norton (at the 10 minute mark is a video done by Tom and Cliff)
Cliff enjoyed singing with three BGSU mathematics colleagues (Charles Holland, Herb Hollister and Dean Neumann) as a group called The Logarythms – HERE is a video from a 1990s MAA Ohio Section meeting and HERE is a picture and article from a BGSU publication (thanks to Tom Hern!)
Andy Long has collected a wide variety of Cliff Long-related items relating to math. He shared this article – Bug, Bands and Monkey Saddles – saying that it is somewhat autobiographical. Andy has much more on his website about our dad – click HERE to see more!
The August 10, 2002 celebration of life / memorial service video for Cliff Long is HERE

Video of Long Bald Men (Clifford Allan, Steve, Andy, Thad) singing a few barbershop quartet songs plus other antics
HERE is Cliff Long’s obituary (though there are S-T inaccuracies – he died on the 6th, for instance)
- and this one with a lengthier math focus thanks to Tom Hern) is also on this BGSU webpage
- HERE is a slightly lengthier biography with some wonderful background details
HERE is an article by a former student, Gary Sherman. Not only is it a nice commentary about Dr. Cliff Long, it’s a wonderful example of how people like Gary follow “Long Memories-like” Binder of a Lifetime approaches to share “About Me” experiences with others. This quote about Dr. Cliff Long’s classroom is precious:
To my surprise the course wasn’t about math-calisthenics, it was an intellectual scrimmage; open, free-wheeling, questions, conjectures, confusion, examples, counterexamples, and every now and then a theorem and its proof.
Details about Cliff’s union with wife Lyn (dearie, as he called her) are HERE
Our dad really enjoyed Johnny Carson, looked a little like him, and even adopted a few Carson-esque mannerisms. If you want a little joy, HERE are some funny animal moments from The Tonight Show: https://youtu.be/Np1xbnynU2Q … a nice reminder of how our dad loved to laugh
