In an essay in the book Mathematical People (Birkhauser, ), she recalls that the summer after her last year of high school, a family friend heard of her desire to continue her studies in mathematics. "[This woman] was decades older and mentioned that she too had hoped to study mathematics," writes Taussky-Todd.

"That was more than I could take. The Olga Taussky-Todd Lecture series was inaugurated in with a lecture by Pauline van den Driessche at ICIAM in Zurich.
