**Fulkerson Prize**for outstanding papers in the area ofdiscrete mathematics is sponsored jointly by theMathematical Programming Society (MPS) and theAmerican Mathematical Society (AMS). Up to three awards of $1500 each are presented at each (triennial) International Symposium of the MPS. Originally, the prizes were paid out of a memorial fund administered by the AMS that was established by friends of the lateDelbert Ray Fulkerson to encourage mathematical excellence in the fields of research exemplified by his work. The prizes are now funded by an endowment administered by MPS.**Winners*** 1979:
