This is very sad but I am thankful for Mr. Nemeth.  I didn't go into
math or science as a profession but I use his code all of the time.

National Federation of the Blind Mourns Passing of Dr. Abraham Nemeth
Honors His Pioneering Work to Enhance Braille
Baltimore, Maryland (October 2, 2013):

The National Federation of the Blind today mourns the death of Dr.
Abraham Nemeth, the scientist who invented the Nemeth Braille
Code for Mathematics and Scientific Notation and was a lifelong
champion of Braille.

Dr. Marc Maurer, president of the National Federation of the Blind,
said: Dr. Nemeth had a great mind and a wonderful sense of
humor. His invention of the Braille code that bears his name has
enabled many blind people to learn, work, and excel in
scientific, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and his
tireless Braille advocacy work undoubtedly changed countless lives.
He will be sorely missed and his contributions will be valued by
generations to come.

For more information about Dr. Nemeth and his groundbreaking Braille
code, please read The History of the Braille Code: An
Interview with Dr. Abraham Nemeth, from the Future Reflections 2009
Special Issue: A Celebration of Braille.
