Happy 92nd Birthday, Donald P. Shiley


Donald P. Shiley was born on January 19, 1920 (1-19-1920, or simply 1191920) and died on July 31, 2010 (7312010).

Thursday, January 19, 2012 marks Mr. Shiley's 92nd birthday. To celebrate his birthday and to recognize his generosity and commitment in supporting his alma mater, Dr. Aziz Inan has constructed this simple, recreational birthday gift for him involving some of his recent “numerically special” birthday numbers.

Thanks Donald for all you have done for all of us!
