Abstract:

In 1946 R. L. Moore closed a letter with a personal note to "Please remember me to Miss Mullikin." Who was Miss Mullikin? And why did someone of Moore's stature wish to convey his best wishes to her? This paper answers these questions by describing the role this virtually unknown, early-20th-century mathematician played in the evolution of connected sets by examining her influence on international communication between Polish and American mathematicians and by providing biographical details.
