Blackwell entered the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with plans of becoming an elementary school teacher, working as a dishwasher and waiter while saving up for tuition and living expenses. By the age of 22, he had earned both a bachelor’s and an M.A. in mathematics – in 1938 for bachelors, 1939 for M.A.s, followed by his doctorate dissertation “Some Properties of Markov Chains,” which garnered significant acclaim among professionals across multiple scientific and OR disciplines.
After leaving the Institute, Blackwell began applying for academic positions. He sent applications to 105 historically black colleges before interviewing at UC-Berkeley where he accepted a position and later served as chairman of its statistics department from 1957-1961.
Blackwell would find his external mathematical stimulation at RAND Corp in 1948-50 when working to gain independence from Howard University’s mathematical stimuli. Here he would meet statistician Abe Girshick who would soon become his close friend, prompting Blackwell’s entrance into mathematical statistics – eventually receiving twelve honorary doctorates, numerous awards, accolades, and leadership roles throughout his career.
Blackwell submitted applications to over 100 African American colleges between 1941-42 and visited 30 of them – ultimately receiving instructorships at Southern University, Baton Rouge and Clark College, Atlanta before landing his first regular appointment with Howard University, Washington D.C. in 1944.
Daniel interned at both the Georgia Superior Court and U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia during his law school years to hone his legal research and writing abilities. These externships helped Daniel perfect these crucial skills.
