Gould has Erdös number 2 in three ways:
     1. Gould, H. W. - Verner E. Hoggatt, Jr. (1921–1980) - Erdös (1913-1996)

     2. Gould, H. W. - Michael E. Mays - Erdös
     3. Gould, H. W. - John Brillhart - Erdös
It could have been 1, but after several years I could not figure out Paul's hint, so one might say it is holding at  2 minus epsilon.

Gould has Einstein number 3 in the following way:
    Gould - L. Carlitz (1907-1999) - E.G.Straus(1922-1983) -  Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

New: Gould Manuscript Project, July 2014 - Henry Gould and Jocelyn Quaintance have just signed a contract in July 2014 with World Scientific Publishing Co., Singapore, for one volume of a three-volume text based on seven volumes (2000 handwritten pages) of formulas and identities which Gould put together from 1945 to 1990. This first book is titled "Combinatorial Identities for the Stirling numers", and may appear in 2015,
