Abstract

John Arthur Todd was one of the last survivors of the school of classical algebraic geometry that flourished in Cambridge under H. F. Baker, FRS. But, unlike most of his contemporaries, with the notable exception of W. V. D. Hodge, FRS, Todd made seminal contributions to the more modern theory, and his name is now enshrined in the literature and widely known.
