This month features some aspects of algebra and history. We explore the quest of Enriques for an important completeness theorem. [Fortuitously, one of the authors of those articles has been honored with the National Medal of Science.] And we examine the role of trinomials in modern aspects of the subject. On the historical side, we examine the role of the Parker Fellowsips in the development of mathematics at Harvard, and in the United States as a whole. Finally, a memorial article for Henry Helson recalls the life and career of an important and influential mathematical analyst.
