ICMI Executive Committees 1908-2009

Since the establishment of ICMI during the fourth International Congress of Mathematicians held in Rome, 1908 the Executive Committees of the Commission (originally known as "Central Committees") have succeeded one another at intervals of approximately four years.  A list of previous members and officials appears below. The following sources were used in the gathering of this material:
