James Sidis (April 1, 1898 – July 17,
1944) was an American child prodigy with
exceptional mathematical and linguistic
parents Boris and Sarah Sidis, emigrant
Jews who escaped
anti-Semitic Russian pogroms and came to
America at the end of the 19th century.
Although the university had previously
refused to let him take the entrance
examinations at age eight, in 1909,
Sidis set a record by becoming the
youngest person ever to enroll at
Harvard College at age 11, as part of a
program to enroll gifted students early.
Abraham Sperling, Ph.D., director of New
York City's Aptitude Testing Institute,
said after Sidis' death that according
to his computations, he "easily had an
IQ between 250 and 300" * and that there
was no evidence that his intellect had
declined in adulthood.
