Background
Born in Chhajulwadi, Amritsar district, Punjab Province, British India, Dalip Singh Saund (1899-1973) immigrated to the United States to study at the University of California Berkeley, where he earned a PhD in mathematics in 1924. Upon completing his doctorate, he married Marian Kosa in 1928, and remained in California, where he established himself as a farmer. Together they had three children.
