The Paul R. Halmos – Lester R. Ford Award (formerly known as the Lester R. Ford Award) is a $1,000 prize given annually by the Mathematical Association of America for authors of articles of expository excellence published in The American Mathematical Monthly or Mathematics Magazine.[1] It is awarded to at most four authors each year.[1] The prize was established in 1964 as the Lester R. Ford Award to honor the contributions of mathematician and former MAA president Lester R. Ford.[1] In 2012 the award was renamed the Paul R. Halmos – Lester R. Ford Award to honor the contributions of former The American Mathematical Monthly editor Paul R. Halmos and the support of the Halmos family for the awards.[1] Halmos himself received the award in 1971 and 1977.
