Daniel J. Curtin (Northern Kentucky University) and Daniel E. Otero (Xavier University) have organized the Ohio River Early Sources in Mathematical Exposition (ORESME) Reading Group. The Reading Group has been bringing together scholars interested in the history of mathematics from the Cincinnati tri-state area twice a year since 1998 to read original source materials in mathematics.  The organization was named after the French Scholastic philosopher Nicole Oresme (1323-1382) whose "latitude of forms" constituted early graphical representations of mathematical functions, long before Descartes. The Reading Group was inspired by the experience the organizers shared during the summers of 1995-1997 at the Institute on the History of Mathematics and its Use in Teaching held at American University (Washington, DC), and was established under the guidance of Fred Rickey, one of the organizers of the Institute and an erstwhile Ohioan.
