2011-09-10: IMU celebrates its 60th anniversary

Today the IMU celebrates its 60th anniversary after its rebirth in 1951. On September 10, 1951 Börge Jessen (Denmark) announced to the National Adhering Organizations that the Union was officially established after ten countries had joined the Union (see page 86 of Olli Lehto’s book “Mathematics without borders, a history of the International Mathematical Union”).
