Early Life and Education
Henry Kranendonk was born to two Russian Jews descended from merchant families who assimilated into society after the Russian Revolution, with one parent becoming an army doctor while his other grandparent rose through the ranks to become a general in the Red Army before being executed during Stalin’s 1937 purge of its ranks.
Once war had ended, Henry accepted a joint physics and mathematics appointment at New York University, founded by Richard Courant. Here he met Mildred Cohn – who happened to be a chemist – whom he would go on to marry later that same year.
He has always been an enthusiastic teacher and took great pleasure in working with students. His gift for explaining complex ideas clearly and slowly ensures that students understand them all. Furthermore, he is an accomplished writer having contributed articles to journals and magazines including Statistics Teacher.

Achievement and Honors
Kranendonk’s name has become an epithet in science for his distinguished contributions. He has received multiple awards and recognition, such as being named Outstanding Educator by the National Science Foundation and receiving their distinguished service award.
He currently sits on the board of Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters as well as contributing regularly to scientific journals.
He has also made significant contributions to Milwaukee education as a leader of the Mathematics Partnership. Along with other UWM faculty members like DeAnn Huinker and Kevin McLeod from CMSER department of School of Education at UWM, they were awarded grants by local schools to encourage more students to continue pursuing mathematics after high school graduation – thus providing high quality instruction with which more graduates leave high school with skills they’ll need for college and careers.
Henry was part of an extended Jewish family with deep-seated ties to Russia’s upper classes. While learning English, one time Henry responded rudely when someone larger said hello and Henry replied with four-letter word that caused an outburst from some other children that almost led to physical confrontation between himself and said kid; eventually however, other kids came to Henry’s rescue to protect him.
Henry was known for his engaging ideas and dynamic writing style, featuring numerous subscripts and superscripts in his notes for clarity and accuracy. Never one to leave anything out, Henry never left out an important qualification or subpoint that might appear unclear or inaccurate in his work.
He was also an extremely popular professor at Brooklyn Polytechnic and Queens College, although he opted not to join the Manhattan Project; instead working on projects related to sonar and submarine technology instead. Unfortunately he died suddenly of a heart attack at 65.
