Today's Famous Mental Illness sufferer is: John Nash 1928-

John Nash, a mathematical genius in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations, was honored with the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1994 and is the subject of Ron Howard’s film, “A Beautiful Mind,” based upon Sylvia Nasar’s biography of the same name. Nash earned a doctorate from Princeton University in 1950 and developed what would decades later become known as the Nash equilibrium theory. At the age of 29, Nash was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and spent the next twenty years suffering from delusions and hallucinations, being involuntarily committed several times. Nash recovered enough in the 1970’s to gradually return to teaching mathematics at Princeton University, where legend has dubbed him, “The Phantom of Fine Hall.” [wikipedia summary]
