History[edit]

After the death of Sir Edmund Whittaker in 1956, his son John Macnaghten Whittaker donated on behalf of the Whittaker Family the sum of £500 to the Edinburgh Mathematical Society to establish a prize for mathematical work in memory of his father. As of 2009, the award money remains £500.[1]
