Howard Anton obtained his B.A. from Lehigh University, his M.A. from the University of Illinois, and his Ph.D. from the Polytechnic University of Brooklyn, all in mathematics. In the early 1960s he worked for Burroughs Corporation and Avco Corporation at Cape Canaveral, Florida, where he was involved with the manned space program. In 1968 he joined the Mathematics Department at Drexel University, where he taught full time until 1983. Since that time he has been an Emeritus Professor at Drexel and has devoted most of his time to textbook writing and activities for mathematical associations. Dr. Anton was president of the EPADEL section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), served on the Board of Governors of that organization, and guided the creation of the student chapters of the MAA. He has published numerous research papers in functional analysis, approximation theory, and topology, as well as pedagogical papers. He is best known for his textbooks in linear algebra and calculus, which are among the most widely used in the world. There are currently more than one hundred versions of his books, including translations into Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Italian, Indonesian, French, Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, and German. His textbook in linear algebra has won both the Textbook Excellence Award and the McGuffey Award from the Textbook Author’s Association. For relaxation, Dr. Anton enjoys traveling and photography.

Irl C. Bivens received his A.B. from Pfeiffer College and his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, both in mathematics. After positions at Pfeiffer College and Rice University, he joined the Department of Mathematics at Davidson College in 1982. At Davidson, he was privileged to teach courses in analysis, geometry, the history of mathematics, and recreational mathematics until his retirement as Emeritus Professor in 2018. Professor Bivens has published numerous articles on undergraduate mathematics and is a recipient of the George Polya Award, the Merten M. Hasse Prize for Expository Writing in Mathematics, and, together with Benjamin G. Klein, the Carl B. Allendoerfer Award. Past service to the MAA includes membership on the editorial boards of The College Mathematics Journal, the Problem Book series, and Dolciani Mathematical Expositions, as well as service on MAA awards committees for expository writing. For recreation, he enjoys swimming, juggling, reading, and mathematical magic.

Stephen L. Davis received his B.A. from Lindenwood College and his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in mathematics. Having previously taught at Rutgers University and the Ohio State University, Dr. Davis joined the faculty at Davidson College in 1981, teaching courses that included calculus, linear algebra, abstract algebra, and computer science, until retiring as Emeritus Professor in 2019. Professor Davis held several offices in the Southeastern section of the MAA, including chair and secretary-treasurer, and represented the section on the MAA Board of Governors. He has been involved at all levels in the grading of the Advanced Placement® Calculus Exam starting in 1988, served as Chief Reader during 2015—2019, and has been a member and chair of the AP® Calculus Development Committee. Locally, he continues to be actively involved in nurturing mathematically talented middle and high school students through leadership in the Charlotte Mathematics Club. Professor Davis and his wife Elisabeth enjoy traveling and time with family. They have three children, Laura, Anne, and James, all former calculus students.
