Who was Arthur Harold Stone?

Arthur Harold Stone was a British mathematician born in London, who worked mostly in topology. His wife was American mathematician Dorothy Maharam. His first paper dealt with squaring the square, he proved the Erdős–Stone theorem with Paul Erdős and is credited with the discovery of the first flexagon, a trihexaflexagon while he was a student at Princeton University in the USA in 1939. The Stone's metrization theorem has been named after him, and he was a member of a group of mathematicians who published pseudonymously as Blanche Descartes. He is not to be confused with American mathematician Marshall Harvey Stone.
