Siddoway family: Colorado College has another professor by the name of Siddoway, and you guessed it, the two of us are married. Mike teaches Mathematics and serves as Associate Dean of the Faculty. Maybe you’ve read through this whole page and are utterly confused because you are seeking the Prof. Siddoway whose recent work is in divisibility theory of arithmetical rings!
