Calcutta Mathematical Society was founded on September 6, 1908 by a stellar team comprising of
and 90 other founding members. The Society is located at Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta) in the state of West Bengal, India. Kolkata is a unique city. Having been the cradle of the Indian Renaissance and the seminary, the journey of Higher Education in modern India began from Kolkata. It is the home of many great Indians. Nobel Laureates Ronald Ross, C. V. Raman, Mother Teresa and Amartya Sen were all closely associated with the rich heritage and tradition of Kolkata. Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, the literary wizard, and Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis, founder of the Indian Statistical Institute, were also from Kolkata.
The Society's association with legends like Albert Einstein, S. Chandrasekhar and Abdus Salam bears an eloquent testimony to the height of its excellence in the world of Mathematical Sciences. All along, the Calcutta Mathematical Society has been able to create a distinct impression in the mind of the elite of the society, and we hope it will continue to do so forever.
The main objectives of the Calcutta Mathematical Society comprise of but are not limited to the following.

"The Officers of the Society shall be chosen out of the Members and shall consist of a President, five Vice-Presidents, a Treasurer, a Secretary, an Editorial Secretary, and an Assistant Secretary. The President, Vice-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretaries with as many other Members as shall make a total of twenty-two (including the Assistant Secretary, if any) shall constitute a Council for the management and direction of the affairs of the Society."
The Council is the main governing body, having the management and direction of all the affairs of the Society, subject to the control of the General Meetings. The Council meets periodically at the Society and frames Rules for the management and governance of the same from time to time. It also takes charge of appointing at different positions of the Society and is liable to draw up and produce a report on the state of affairs of the Society at the Annual General Meeting.
The President, Vice-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary and other Members of the Council are elected every three years by ballot at the Annual General Meeting of the Society. Members are elected and nominated in the ordinary General Meeting of the Society on a periodic basis. Please check the Membership page for more details regarding this.
Over the years, the library of the Society has attained the distinction of being one of the richest libraries in the country, particularly in the field of Mathematics. The library now has more than 20,000 volumes of books and journals. The Society boosts the collection through the Exchange Relation it has with numerous Universities, Institutions and Learned Societies all over the world. The Society receives 120 foreign journals from USA, UK, Japan, Yugoslavia, China, Korea, France, Australia, Germany, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Poland, Canada and 25 Indian journals from different states.
The library also maintains a collection of manuscripts, letters and valuable papers of eminent scientists and mathematicians of India and abroad. Uncountably many research scholars, teachers and students of mathematics and mathematical sciences from India and abroad have used the library for different scholarly purpose. We hope the library will continue serving the mathematics community in future.
