The first CRM/Fields Prize was given to Professor H.S.M. Coxeter
of the University of Toronto. On September 22, 1995, Prof. Coxeter
gave his lecture "Evolution of CoxeterDynkin Diagrams".
He was awarded his prize by director Luc Vinet . Prof. Coxeter
gave another talk for undergraduates. In an overcrowded hall,
with people standing along the walls and sitting on the floor,
Prof. Coxeter gave a lecture entitled "Euler's formula for
polyhedra." It is an experience that will be remembered by
many young mathematicians.
