Helmut Wielandt

He was born in Niedereggenen, Lörrach, Germany. He gave a plenary lecture Entwicklungslinien in der Strukturtheorie der endlichen Gruppen (Lines of Development in the Structure Theory of Finite Groups) at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in 1958 at Edinburgh[1] and was an Invited Speaker with talk Bedingungen für die Konjugiertheit von Untergruppen endlicher Gruppen (Conditions for the Conjugacy of Finite Groups) at the ICM in 1962 in Stockholm.
