A brief history of the Department
of Geometry at Eötvös Loránd University between
19382000
 19381946:
 The chairman was Béla Kerékjártó
(topology, foundation of geometry, projective geometry) and
the professors were Manó Beke (differential geometry,
foundation of geometry), Pál Endre Sárközy
(differential geometry, differential equations). Among the
associate professors was Richárd Obláth
(geometric number theory).
 19461949:
 The acting chairman was László Fejes Tóth
(discrete geometry) among his colleague professors doing
geometric research was Pál Szász (hyperbolic
geometry, analysis) and Ferenc Kárteszi (foundation of
geometry, finite geometry).
 19491970:
 The chairman was György Hajós (geometry of
numbers, foundation of geometry) and among the professors was
László Fuchs (algebra, geometric groups).

Lovász (combinatorics, computer science).
 19721977:
 The chairman was József Molnár (combinatorial
geometry, discrete geometry, foundation of geometry) and
among the professors was Gyula Soós (differential
geometry).
 19771999:
