Paul Erdős anecdote

According to a story included in Chapter One of "The Man Who Loved Only Numbers / The Story of Paul Erdös and the Search for Mathematical Truth"WEB,weblink The Man Who Loved Only Numbers / The Story of Paul Erdös and the Search for Mathematical Truth, "The Man Who Loved Only Numbers" was published in hardcover by: Hyperion Books and a later edition was published by The New York Times Book Company, Hoffman, Paul, 0-7868-6362-5, November 23, 2017, November 10, 2017,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20171110020603weblink">weblink no, , Paul Erdős attended the bar mitzvah celebration for Peter Winkler's twins, and Winkler's mother-in-law tried to throw Erdős out. [Quote:]"Erdös came to my twins' bar mitzvah, notebook in hand," said Peter Winkler, a colleague of Graham's at AT&T. "He also brought gifts for my children--he loved kids--and behaved himself very well. But my mother-in-law tried to throw him out. She thought he was some guy who wandered in off the street, in a rumpled suit, carrying a pad under his arm. It is entirely possible that he proved a theorem or two during the ceremony."
