Session abstract:

This session, sponsored by the Committee on the History of the Society, forms part of its oral history initiative in an effort to engage a cross-section of AMS members in a group discussion of aspects of AMS history. Session attendees were asked to respond to and supplement short oral histories presented by a panel of five longtime AMS members on a topic of general interest: "AMS Milestones." To ensure spontaneity, the topic was be publicly announced only at the beginning of the Annual Meeting. (Invited panelists were notified of the topic one week in advance of the meeting.)
