Landon Curt Noll (with Laura Nickel)
discovered a Mersenne prime as a
"high school student" (while also attending college) in
1978. He later found a second Mersenne. At the time he was
studying number theory under Dr. Lehmer and Dr. Dan Jurca.
Noll was later one of the Amdahl
Six that found what was at that time the largest known
prime (a record rarely held by non-Mersennes).
