Education

Shoenfield obtained his PhD in 1953 with Raymond Louis Wilder at the University of Michigan (Models of formal systems).

Career

From 1952, he lectured at Duke University, where he remained until becoming Emeritus in 1992. From 1970 to 1973 he was President of the Mathematics Faculty. In 1956/57 he was at the Institute for Advanced Study. Shoenfield worked on recursion theory, model theory and axiomatic set theory. His textbook on mathematical logic has become a classic.{{harvnb|Jockusch|2001|page=393}}.

Honors

From 1972 to 1976 he was president of the Association for Symbolic Logic. He delivered the Gödel Lecture at the 1992 meeting of the ASL.Gödel Lectures, Association for Symbolic Logic

Hobbies

Already in his student days, he was a passionate and strong contract bridge player.He was an early member Number 694 of the American Go Association and the Memorial Tournament in North Carolina was founded in his memory. (The link includes a photograph of him.)
