Philip Martin Whitman is an American mathematician who contributed to lattice theory, particularly the theory of free lattices.
Living in Pittsburgh,^{[3]} he attended the Haverford College, where he earned a corporation scholarship for 1936–37,^{[4]} and a Clementine Cope fellowship for 1937–38,^{[5]} and was awarded highest honors in mathematical astronomy in 1937.^{[6]} He was elected to the college's chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society.^{[7]} In June 1937, he was conferred the Bachelor of science degree from Haverford.^{[8]} According to Garrett Birkhoff, Whitman was an undergraduate Harvard student in 1937,^{[9]} and an outstanding graduate student not later than 1940, one of the first who taught elementary courses to freshmen in the mathematics department.^{[10]} In 1938 he earned his AM,^{[11]} and in June 1941 he obtained his Ph.D. degree from Harvard University.^{[12]} He was a member of the AMS not later than 1947,^{[13]} and was awarded an AMS honorary membership not later than 1995.^{[14]}
