Tom Lehrer, a long time Harvard math grad student in the 50's,
is the person Robert Tragesser is refering to.    He used to entertain
his math TA sections with his songs.

	 whose name I forget (?) (Plagerize,  let nothing
	 evade your eyes,  etc.) one of whose
	 pieces made fun of hippy-counter-culture,
	 free university mathematics. . .]
