In the article "Mathematicians recognize major discoveries" by Gina Kolata (Research News, 15 Aug., p. 722), Fields Medal winner Michael Freedman was incorrectly described as being a member of the University of Southern California faculty. Freedman is Charles Lee Powell Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego. In addition, several names in the article were spelled incorrectly. Field's should have been Fields, Nevalinna and Navanlinna should have been Nevanlinna, Kirky should have been Kirby, Aryiyah should have been Atiyah, and Strasen should have been Strassen.
