Messenger of Mathematics

Messenger of Mathematics

The Messenger of Mathematics is a defunct journal of mathematics.

The chief editor was William Allen Whitworth with Charles Taylor, and volumes 1-58 were published between 1872 and 1929. James Whitbread Lee Glaisher was the editor-in-chief after Whitworth.

In the nineteen century, foreign contributions represented 4.7% of all pages of mathematics in the journal.


The journal was originally titled Oxford, Cambridge and Dublin Messenger of Mathematics. It was supported by mathematics students, and conducted by a board of editors composed of members of the three universities. Volumes 1-5 were published between 1862 and 1871.
