  • More ancestry information (collected by a distant academic cousin). This uses "academic influence", not just formal advisor/advisee relationships. For example, this lists Heinrich Rubens as a "co-parent" of Ernest Fox Nichols (Rubens was a co-author on two of the three papers that made up Nichols' thesis).
