Howard Eves has enjoyed a long, distinguished career as a teacher, geometer, writer, editor and historian of mathematics. A renowned teacher and scholar, Eves spent most of his career at the University of Maine at Orono, and more recently at Central Florida University. For twenty-five years he edited the Elementary Problems Section of the *American Mathematical Monthly*.

Long known as a mathematical storyteller, Howard Eves here writes his personal reminiscences — mostly mathematical, some not. The cast of characters includes Albert Einstein, Norbert Wiener, Julian Lowell Coolidge, Maurice Fréchet, Nathan Altschiller-Court, G. H. Hardy, and many other interesting figures whom he encountered in a long and active life in mathematics.

In **Mathematical Reminiscences** we also read of Eves' famous mathematical museum, with its lock of Einstein's hair, Hardy's scarf, Veblen's bright yellow lead pencil, Wiener's hat, and much, much more.
