# American Mathematical Society Colloquium Lecturers

The New York Mathematical Society changed its name to the American Mathematical Society and held its first meeting in Brooklyn in 1894 under its new name. At this meeting G W Hill was elected President.

Two summer meetings were held while Hill was President, but in conjunction with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The first was held in Springfield, Massachusetts in the summer of 1895, the second at Buffalo, New York in the summer of 1896

T S Fiske writes:-

An article on the first four colloquia is at THIS LINK.The summer meeting at Buffalo in 1896 is memorable for the first colloquium of the Society. The colloquium was the idea of Professor H S White, then at Northwestern University, who had been one of the leading spirits in the organisation of the colloquium held at Evanston in connection with the World's Fair at Chicago.

The Colloquium of the American Mathematical Society was born and continues today with the list of speakers through the years listed.
