Alan M. Turing

             Turing was alive he accomplished more for the field computer science than any other one person. To honor Turing the Association for Computing Machinery (the ACM) established the "Turing Award" in 1966 and is given annually to an individual for his or her outstanding contribution for the science of computing. Turing's personal life was troubling for him partly because of his homosexuality but mostly because aptitude for science and mathematics left him with little time for a personal life. Turing had quite an impressive education including time at Cambridge, Princeton University. His work began postgraduate. So, his anxiousness to begin a serious career could easily be seen. Turing's mathematical skill also played an important part in bringing World War Two to an end. He has published papers that are now celebrated in the field of mathematics and computing. For this I consider Alan M. Turing to have accomplished more for the field of computer science than any other one person.
             Alan Turing was born June 23,1912 to Julius Mathison and Ethel Sara Turing in London, England. Ethel Sara Turing was married from the family Stoney. The Stoneys were a family of scientific distinction. This might have been where Alan's interest first was innately born. Alan's father worked for the British government at the Indian Civil Service. Young Turing's life was nothing but normal. He was sent to preparatory school, like any upper-class family's son, at an early age and there his education began.
             Turing attended prep schools until enrolling at Sherborne in 1926. His interest in mathematics and science was impressive to his teachers. He found that he would rather start from the base of ever problem and work through to the end opposed to using the answers already given to him. At the same time, his indifferences to writing, Latin, and other English subjects astonished them. After his time at Sherborne he enrolled at King's College, Cambridge as a mathematics scholar in 1931.
