Abstract: It is shown that if $ \kappa $ is an infinite cardinal, then there are $ {2^{{2^\kappa }}}$ nonisomorphic Boolean subalgebras of $ \mathcal{P}\left( \kappa \right)$. Also it is shown that if $ \kappa = c$, then the above subalgebras can be choosen countably complete. This solves a question raised by S. Ulam.
