Oral history interview with Albert W. Tucker, 1984 Apr. 13.

Tucker tells how the journal Annals of Mathematics, which was begun in 1884 by a professor of mathematics at the University of Virginia, became a Princeton publication, with J. H. M. Wedderburn and later Solomon Lefschetz doing most of the editing. Tucker also describes the editorial policies of Lefschetz. Other journals that Tucker talks about are Journal of Symbolic Logic and Annals of Mathematical Statistics. He describes in some detail--having had himself the leading role in the story--how Annals of Mathematical Studies came into being and how it developed.
