"Those of us who were students in those early years remember well the intensely alert interest of these three men (Bolza, Maschke and Moore) in the papers which they themselves and others read before the club . . . Mathematics . . . came first in the minds of these leaders." - G. A. Bliss
A mathematics club was formed at the University in 1893 for graduate students. Meetings were mainly devoted to lectures given by professors at the University, visiting professors, and returning graduates. Here is the first meeting announcement for the "mathematical society and seminary" and a lecture list from an early meeting. The mathematics club at the University continues to this day.
