# A Century of Mathematics in America: Part 1

Share this page *Edited by *
*Peter Duren*

In the 100 years since the founding of the AMS, the American
mathematical community has grown from a small group heavily dependent
on European mathematicians to a large and influential group that in
many areas sets the standard for the rest of the world. By the 1930s,
there was a flourishing mathematical community to welcome the influx
of mathematicians fleeing Europe. This volume, the first in the
History of Mathematics series, brings together a variety of
perspectives on the political, social, and mathematical forces that
have shaped the American mathematical community in the past century.
