There used to be a directory of graduate programs in the mathematical
sciences that included an indicator for whether the department would allow
expository and/or historical theses. I can't seem to find it on my bookshelf
right now (and mine would be several years old anyway), but I know it
exists. I realize that isn't the same as having an actual program in H of M,
but it would be a good starting point.

I am going to forward your request to the Historia Matematica mailing
list--if anybody has any ideas, they will. Does the student want to stay in
the U.S.? There are some excellent programs in Europe and South America
(Spanish required for those).

My History of Math professor at the University of New Hampshire was Dr.
David Burton -- he wrote the book we used in his course (Burton's History
of Mathematics). He may be able to offer some help.

I've been out of the UNH loop for a while, so I don't know his campus
number, but I
think that UNH's general info line is (603) 862 - 1234. Their website is, if all else fails.

Dear everyone,

One of our students, a very bright young woman, is looking for a History of
Mathematics program for graduate school. So far we know only about the
program about Brown University. Can anyone suggest any others, or suggest
how to find such a program? (Her Web searches have been unproductive.)
