Matthew was reluctant to set up a personal homepage because he isnt interested in promoting himself or showing off his achievements, which are considerable. This homepage was designed and written in response to numerous requests from staff, friends, and students who wanted more information about Matthews background and accomplishments. Over the years, weve gotten many such requests by fax, TTY, E-mail, letter, and in person. We felt that having his own homepage would save him the time and trouble of repeating the same information over and over again. Instead of having to answer biographical questions, he can simply refer people to this homepage.
