Foundation

Some time before July 1969, leaders of the brazilian mathematical community decided to propose the creation of a national scientific society for Mathematics – the Brazilian Mathematical Society (SBM-Sociedade Brasileira de Matemática). At that time, there were already some state societies fully functional, for example, the Mathematical Society of São Paulo and the Paranaense Mathematical Society. It was intended to create a consensus that the state societies should no longer exist in order to make way for only one society representing everyone – the SBM. That is what happened to the Mathematical Society of São Paulo, and other societies, but not to the Paranaense Mathematical Society.

During the VII Brazilian Mathematical Colloquium, held on July 1969, the statutes of the new society were presented to the community in a solemn foundation session, chaired by the Colloquium Coordinator, professor Gilberto Francisco Loibel.

The symbolic act for the SBM creation happened through the signatures of all attendants in the minutes book, where every event of the Society’s Foundation Session were registered. This minutes book was called “Foundation Minutes” and its subscribers were considered “Founders”, in the terms of the statute’s 35th article.

Not all of the founders became a member of the Society. In fact, the Statute stated that those who paid the annual membership fee within 120 days would automatically become effective members of the Society.

After the signature of the Foundation Minutes, there was a session for the election of the first Board of Directors  (Election Minutes), for a term ending on July 31st, 1971, and four councilors to serve a term until July 31st, 1972. The elected board was sworn into office by the Colloquium Coordinator and consisted of

  • President:  Chaim Samuel Honig
  • General Secretary: Angelo Antonio Piccinini
  • Treasurer: Alberto de Carvalho Peixoto Azevedo

The first councilors were (Election Minutes)

  • Carlos Benjamim de Lyra (USP)
  • Elon Lages Lima (IMPA)
  • José Ubyrajara Alves (UFC)
  • Mauricio Matos Peixoto (IMPA)

The first Board of Directors and the four councilors had 60 days to carry out the election of other four members for the Director Council, whose terms would extend until July 31st, 1971. Thereby, it was established with this system that only 4 members of the Director Council change every two years.

Such members were:

  • Candido Lima da Silva Dias (USP)
  • Fernando Cardoso de Oliveira (UFPE)
  • Manfredo Perdigão do Carmo (IMPA)
  • Nelson Onuchic (EESC)

The first Director Council meeting took place on august 25th, 1969 (First Meeting Minutes) and the SBM Minutes Book was open on september 5th, 1969 (Opening Term of the Minutes Books).

It was also designated to the first Board of Directors to conduct, within 10 months, the election of the Fiscal Council, for a term until July 31st, 1972, which was composed by

  • Lindolpho de Carvalho Dias (IMPA)
  • Candido Lima da Silva Dias (IME/USP)
  • Carlos Alberto Barbosa Dantas (IME/USP)
