ABSTRACT
<p>The journal <it>Mathematical Tables and other Aids to Computation</it> was founded by Professor Raymond Clare Archibald in 1943. It was published by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences. For a time it was the only journal dealing exclusively with computation and computing devices. In its July 1946 issue it published the landmark article “The Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC)” by Herman H. Goldstine and Adele Goldstine, which described in detail the first large-scale electronic computer, the ENIAC.</p><p>This article discusses the history of <it>Mathematical Tables and other Aids to Computation</it> during the years 1959 through 1965, a period in which major changes took place in the publication of the journal. Among these were the transfer of publication from the National Research Council to the American Mathematical Society and the change in the name of the journal to <it>Mathematics of Computation</it>.</p>
