Abstract

[In 1984, Pierre Crépel contacted Jean Ville, who had retired from the University of Paris in 1978, to ask him about the sources of his thinking about martingales. This document provides an English translation of their correspondence and a narrative based on Crépel’s notes from a face-to-face interview. Ville recounts not only his work on martingales in the 1930s but also his perceptions of mathematical teaching and research in France during the period; his experience with Maurice Fréchet and Émile Borel in Paris and with Karl Menger in Vienna, and his own subsequent mathematical career.]
