Howard Wilcox
Professor of Mathematics, Emeritus

Retired from Wellesley in 2007 after 37 years of teaching mathematics.


I thoroughly enjoyed teaching Wellesley students and continue occasional substituting in the classroom, replacing faculty attending conferences, etc. Also, I continue to give talks on personal finance to groups at the College.  

I enjoy auditing courses at the College --- usually one per year and often in the History Department. 

 I have always been a musical performer,usually a chorister but in my younger years, sometimes a soloist.  Currently I sing with a group called the New World Chorale, a Boston-area chorus that rents itself out to orchestras wishing to perform choral works.  The venues for concerts and quality of membership in the group make performing fun and rewarding.
