TVOntario has produced a very fine documentary based on the life of geometer Donald Coxeter, who lived in Toronto and worked at the University of Toronto for many years. It’s called The Man Who Saved Geometry and is based on the book by Siobhan Roberts, King of Infinite Space: Donald Coxeter, the Man Who Saved Geometry.

Two York profs are interviewed in the documentary, Asia Ivic Weiss and Walter Whiteley.

I reviewed Roberts’ book a few years ago, here, where you can read about my own minor role in the Coxeter story.
