The Mathematical Association of America's The Paul R. Halmos-Lester R. Ford Award

The Paul R. Halmos-Lester R. Ford Awards recognize authors of articles of expository excellence published in The American Mathematical Monthly. The awards were established in 1964 as the Ford awards, named for Lester R. Ford, Sr., a distinguished mathematician, editor of the American Mathematical Monthly, 1942-1946, and President of the Mathematical Association of America, 1947-1948. In 2012, the Board of Governors designated these awards as the Paul R. Halmos-Lester R. Ford Awards to recognize the support for the awards provided by the Halmos family and to recognize Paul R. Halmos, a distinguished mathematician and editor of the Monthly, 1982-1986. Up to four of these awards, each $1000, are given annually at the Summer Meeting of the Association. All awards given from 1976 on are for articles that appear in The American Mathematical Monthly. Between 1965 and 1975, Ford awards were given for articles in the Monthlyor Mathematics Magazine.

Most of these award-winning articles are available in pdf form in MathDL. Click here to find links to the articles
