"Generous contributions by Daniel’s Bartlett's family and friends have made it possible to establish a scholarship and an annual lecture in his honor. The lectures feature mathematicians of world renown, speaking on topics of interest to wide audiences, and are open to the public. The purposes of both the scholarship and lecture are to memorialize Daniel Bartlett, a graduate student in mathematics at the time of his death in 2006, to foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics of the highest level in the Tucson community, and to support graduate education in Mathematics at The University of Arizona.

Professor Hugh Woodin. Professor was born in Tucson, Arizona. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1984 under Robert M. Solovay. His dissertation title was "Discontinuous Homomorphisms of C(Omega) and Set Theory." He served as chair of the Berkeley mathematics department for the 2002-2003 academic year. Woodin is a managing editor of the Journal of Mathematical Logic. He was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2000."
