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 memorial service video for Cliff Long is HERE

 


HERE is one of “Steve’s Snippets” about his dad, Cliff Long


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

  • and this one with a lengthier math focus thanks to Tom Hern)
  • HERE is a slightly lengthier biography

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
