Francis Su Begins Role as MAA President

Francis Edward Su, who has served as President-Elect for the last year, became MAA President effective February 1.

Su is the Benediktsson-Karwa Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College. He received his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin, and his Ph.D. from Harvard University. His research is in geometric and topological combinatorics, motivated by applications in the social sciences.

Virginia Halmos Dies at Age 99

Virginia Halmos died on January19, 2015 in Los Gatos California. A long-time benefactor of the MAA and other mathematical and scholarly institutions, she was the widow of the very prominent mathematician, Paul R. Halmos. In 2002 Paul and Virginia contributed nearly $4,000,000 for the renovation and construction of the Carriage House Conference Center adjacent to the MAA headquarters complex a block off Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. This facility was recently named the best such meeting site for gatherings of fewer than 100 in the United States.
