Ebenezer Cunningham

Ebenezer Cunningham (7 May 1881, Hackney, London – 12 Feb 1977)was a British mathematician who made significant mathematical contributions to the development of special relativity.

He went up to St John's College, Cambridge in 1899 and graduated Senior Wrangler in 1902, winning the Smith's Prize in 1904. He was elected a fellow of St John's and appointed lecturer at the University of Liverpool, moving to University College London in 1907 and returning to Cambridge in 1911. According to Warwick (see reference), Cunningham and Harry Bateman performed a pivotal role in the development of mathematical physics. Cunningham's portrait appears on page 410 of Warwick's work.

His book "The Principle of Relativity" was one of the first treatises in English about special relativity, along with those by A.A. Robb and Ludwik Silberstein.

He was an ardent pacifist, strongly religious, a member of Emmanuel United Reformed Church, Cambridge and chairman of the Congregational Union of England and Wales for 1953-54.
