The scientific and personal correspondence, teaching notes, writings and talks, biographical papers, and a small collection of audiovisual material form the collection known as the Papers of John Todd and Olga Taussky-Todd in the Archives of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Both mathematicians, John Todd and Olga Taussky-Todd arrived at Caltech in 1957, respectively as a professor and a research associate. Olga Taussky-Todd was the first woman to receive a formal Caltech teaching appointment and, in 1971, a full professorship. The Todds stayed at Caltech for the rest of their lives. Upon retirement both became emeritus, but they both remained professionally active until their deaths.
