In 1946/47, Dr. E. U. Condon (1902–1974), the fourth director of the National Bureau of Standards, arranged for the organization of a Division of Applied Mathematics, under the leadership of Dr. John H. Curtiss. A principal objective of this division was the development of the mathematics appropriate for the automatic digital computing machines then being constructed. An account is given here of some of the activities in numerical analysis carried out by that division in its first 25 years.
