The MAA was founded in part as a vehicle for the continued publication of the mathematics journal "American Mathematical Monthly", which had been in publication since 1894 and is still today one of the nation's leading mathematics journals. The Monthly's founder and first editor was ONU graduate Benjamin Franklin Finkel.
The mission of the MAA is "to advance the mathematical sciences, especially at the collegiate level." Learn more about the organization at http://www.maa.org/
