Beezer's Academic Genealogy

Here it is the succession of PhD advisers and students that goes backwards in time from my own degree. For the later entries it is not clear that there was a formal advisor/student/degree relationship, but there is evidence that one person was influenced in their education by the other. It seems odd that [TCSG] lists Ore as a student of Skolem, with Ore's degree awarded in 1924 while [BDM] lists Skolem's degree as being given in 1926.
