Allan Gott­lieb, MA’68, PhD’73, a professor at New York University for 35 years and a pioneer in the field of parallel computing, was featured in a recent issue of MIT News magazine. For the past half century, he has been editing the magazine’s Puzzle Corner column.

Now he acts mainly as an editor, choosing puzzles and solutions from the community that has grown up around the project.
