Important information regarding the recent AMS power outage.

The transformer that provides electricity to the AMS building in Providence went down on Sunday, April 22. The restoration of our email, website, AMS Bookstore and other systems is almost complete. We are currently running on a generator but overnight a new transformer should be hooked up and (fingers crossed) we should be fine by 8:00 (EDT) Wednesday morning. This issue has affected selected phones, which should be repaired by the end of today. No email was lost, although the accumulated messages are only just now being delivered so you should expect some delay.

Thanks for your patience.

Sc.D. Cambridge University, U.K., 1898

Morley came to the U.S. from Suffolk, England, and spent twelve years at Haverford College in Haverford, PA. He was later a professor of mathematics at Johns Hopkins University from 1900 until his retirement in 1928, and he participated in research programs at the Carnegie Institution in Washington, D.C. until 1936. Morely wrote Introduction to the theory of analytic functions, an excellent advanced level text of the time; published many research papers in geometry; and contributed over 60 problems--mostly geometrical--that were published in Educational Times over the course of 50 years.
