Title

A Forgotten Nineteenth Century Mathematics Journal

Abstract

Scientiae Baccalaureus was a scientific journal, mostly mathematics, published in Rolla, Missouri, USA in 1890-1891. Largely forgotten today, it nevertheless had the distinction of being the first to publish English translations of the principal works of Lobachevsky and Bolyai on non-Euclidean geometry. This paper provides a brief overview of Scientiae Baccalaureus and some of the people associated with it.
