Abstract

(1) THE American Mathematical Society anticipated its semicentenary, which fell in 1938, by appointing a celebration committee ten years in advance of that date. The semi–centenary was a great social event; it was also the occasion for the issue of two handsome volumes, a history of the Society and a set of addresses.
