Henry P. McKean, Jr.^{[1]} (born 1930 in Wenham, Massachusetts) is an American mathematician at New York University. He works in various areas of analysis. He obtained his PhD in 1955 from Princeton University under William Feller.
He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1980. In 2007 he received the Leroy P. Steele Prize for his life's work. In 1978 he was an invited speaker at the International Mathematical Congress in Helsinki (Algebraic curves of infinite genus arising in the theory of nonlinear waves). In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.^{[2]}
His doctoral students include Michael Arbib, Harry Dym, Daniel Stroock, Eugene Trubowitz, Pierre van Moerbeke, and Victor Moll.
