Third Colorado Mathematical Olympiad: April 18, 1986

  • Alexander Soifer


As you recall, Dean Tracey declined to host the First Olympiad, insisting on hosting the Second Olympiad. He probably had the idea of parity at heart, for on October 21, 1985, he called me in to say how little he cared about the Third Olympiad. I replied with the following October 22, 1985 letter to him: You mentioned yesterday that the Olympiad has been a low priority for the College of Engineering and Applied Science (EAS) and that is the reason why I visited you yesterday to ask for secretarial and fund raising assistance. I have a different opinion. The College of EAS was the sponsor of the Olympiad in 1985 because of your choice; and I visited you yesterday to find out whether you would like to sponsor it again in 1986 and treat it as a high enough priority for smooth operation of this large event.
