"Compiling and writing the history of the Missouri MAA Section has been time-consuming, but it has mainly been rewarding and a wonderful learning experience. Both the Monthly and the MAA began with strong Midwestern and Missouri influences, something which our section can look back on with well-deserved pride. Missouri MAA members have consistently advanced collegiate mathematics, mathematics education, mathematics research and scholarship, and public appreciation for and understanding of mathematics in both Missouri and the nation. Looking to the future, the MAA and the Missouri Section can continue to be a great source of opportunities for leadership and service for Missourians in the mathematical sciences, and we can continue to build on the solid foundation of the first hundred years"--Preface, page iii.
