The competition is run by the Mathematical Association of America and was established by William Lowell Putnam’s widow because of his belief in the value of team competition in college studies and the “healthful rivalry in mathematical studies in the colleges and universities of the United States and Canada.”

Taking New York pride in Mendy (even though he’s a Chicago transplant), the New York Daily News deservedly took note of his accomplishment, as did NY1. We at LCM look forward to hearing many more great things from Mendy.
