Didn't we just do this?
Can You Afford a Piece of Mathematical History?
UPDATE: Alan Turing's notebook sold for more than 1 million dollars at auction in New York.
Though most of Turing's papers are in the archives at King's College in Cambridge, the notebook was passed along to his close friend and fellow mathematician. The sale marks this first time that any of Turing's personal items were available at public auction.

Spotlight on AMS
Five of our own attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) this year. A big congratulations especially goes out to Taylor Chott, Kownoon Her, Sujee Park and Sarah Verros. Each of these students presented posters at the conference. Kelsey Kalmbach, a presenter last year, was also able to attend.
The NCUWM is held each year and is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages in their careers. The overall goal of the conference is to arm participants with knowledge, self-confidence, and a network of peers to help them become successful mathematicians.
A big way to go to each of these ladies who are well on their way in becoming successful majors and successful mathematicians!
