Michael D. Morley

Michael Darwin Morley (born 1930) is an American mathematician, currently professor emeritus at Cornell University. His research is in mathematical logic and model theory, and he is best known for Morley's categoricity theorem, which he proved in his Ph.D. thesis "Categoricity in Power" in 1962.[1]

His formal Ph.D. advisor was Saunders MacLane at the University of Chicago, but he actually finished his thesis under the guidance of Robert Vaught at the University of California, Berkeley.
