Ken Clements is an interesting character, of whom and by whom we’ve been reading a lot of late. We plan to write about Clements in the near future, but for now we’ll just post an article by Clements on a really interesting character.
In 1983, Clements more or less stumbled into meeting and assessing a very young Terry Tao. Clements then wrote about these meetings in a thoughtful and touching article. The article is paywalled, but we happened to see it posted. So, what the hell. You can read Clements’ excellent article here.

A very interesting article about Terrence one of three highly gifted siblings
Some of the questions Terrence was able to answer at age 7 were at undergraduate level IMO
(Trevor and Nigel are his brothers)
