I read on the Wikipedia page on Walter Pitts that :
Pitts was also described as an eccentric, refusing to allow his name to be made publicly available. He refused all offers of advanced degrees or official positions at MIT as he would have to sign his name.
It came to me as a surprise as he seems to have use his name in his research articles.
Did Walter Pitts refuse to allow his name to be made publicly available, or that some myth?
