He was awarded the Order of Lenin three times, and the Lenin Prize, and received many other honors and recognition such as Honorary Membership, in the American National Academy of Sciences, the American Mathematical Society, the London Mathematical Society, and many more.

 

Professor Carl L. Siegel received his Doctor of Philosophy degree in Gottingen, 1920; became Professor of Mathematics at the University of Frankfurt-am-Main, 1922, and later at the University of Gottingen. Many of his important contributions to the theory of numbers and several complex variables date to this period in Gottingen. Being an outspoken anti-Nazi, he fled Germany in 1940 to Denmark, and was at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, from 1940 to 1950 at which time he returned to Gottingen.
