Abstract: In 1906 Dickson published a list of noncommutative division algebras of dimension three over the field of finite elements. Recently, Kaplansky has found a mistake in this list; and I used a computer to check all the entries in the list. I then found an algebra missing from the list and used the computer again to make a complete search for all such algebras.
