Subject: Sad news about the Math-Hist-List
It is with sadness that the Mathematical Association of American has informed me that the software license for this list will expire on July 14 and that this list will be "retired". The MAA will no longer host it. Messages sent to the list will not work; you may get a reply indicating "no such address" but I don't know.
This list has been active since 1994 and there have been many interesting questions and discussions. Personally, it has been a rewarding experience. I hope that you feel the same.
This decision was made without my consultation and I only learned of it recently, so I have not thought about how it might be continued. Your ideas would be welcome.
