Career
Hartshorne was a Putnam Fellow in Fall 1958 while he was an undergraduate at Harvard University.^{[1]} He received a Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1963 after completing a doctoral dissertation titled Connectedness of the Hilbert scheme under the supervision of John Coleman Moore and Oscar Zariski.^{[2]}^{[3]} He then became a Junior Fellow at Harvard University, where he taught for several years.^{[4]} In 1972, he was appointed to the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley,^{[4]} where he is a Professor Emeritus as of 2020.^{[5]}
Hartshorne is the author of the text Algebraic Geometry.^{[6]}^{[7]}
Awards
In 1979, Hartshorne was awarded the Leroy P. Steele Prize for "his expository research article Equivalence relations on algebraic cycles and subvarieties of small codimension, Proceedings of Symposia in Pure Mathematics, volume 29, American Mathematical Society, 1975, pp. 129164; and his book Algebraic geometry, SpringerVerlag, Berlin and New York, 1977."^{[8]} In 2012, Hartshorne became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.^{[9]}
Personal life
Hartshorne is married to Edie Churchill and has two sons.^{[4]} He is a mountain climber and amateur flute and shakuhachi player.^{[4]}
