Here's a homework assignment for El Naschie Watch readers. Let me provide the background.
Since my first blog entry on the veracity of El Naschie's claim to have been made a full professor, there have been some developments.
One is that his claim to have a PhD from University College London is established with enough confidence that Die Zeit, under pressure from El Naschie's lawyers, agreed to withdraw their assertion that he didn't have one from Christoph Drösser's piece. My guess is that he probably does have a PhD, although I acknowledge it's weirdly elusive.
Another is that the Naschie Party is claiming that proof of his having been made a full professor exists. It is allegedly in the form of paperwork signed by Prof. George Herrmann (1921-2007). From the bio, one infers that El Naschie's full professorship would have had to commence in the interval 1962 - 2007, as it was during these years that Herrmann himself was a full professor. The University granting El Naschie his full professorship would have had to be Northwestern or Stanford, as these were Herrmann's professorial affiliations.
And by now you may have guessed the assignment: Find out whether El Naschie was ever a full professor at Northwestern or Stanford.
I should make two final remarks. One, he still hasn't answered the question I put to him a month ago regarding the genesis of his full professorship. And two, although he has claimed many affiliations on his hundreds of numerology screeds, I am not aware of Northwestern or Stanford having been among them.
