Peter J. Freyd
Peter J. Freyd (born February 5, 1936, in Evanston, Illinois) is an American mathematician, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, known for work in category theory and for founding the False Memory Syndrome Foundation.
Freyd is perhaps best known as the author of the foundational book Abelian Categories: An Introduction to the Theory of Functors. This work culminates in a proof of Mitchell's embedding theorem.
