The Thomas S. Fiske Society

Named for our founder Thomas S. Fiske, the Fiske Society honors individuals who have made a provision for the American Mathematical Society in their estate plan. Since the first bequest in 1929, estate gifts have enabled the AMS to serve the mathematics community in distinct ways. The Steele Prizes, Trjitzinsky Awards and more were made possible by mathematics supporters who, like Thomas S. Fiske, created a lasting legacy of commitment to mathematics.
