Summary:
The interval from 1890 to 1913 was a crucial time in the development of mathematical scholarship in the United States. At the beginning of this period mathematical research in American universities lagged far behind that in Europe. By the start of World War I the gap was largely closed. It would remain so. This book explores the people, timing, and factors behind the American advance in mathematics.
