About Ed Pegg, Jr.

Martin Gardner is well-known for his "Mathematical Games" columns in Scientific American (which have been gathered into many volumes). Not a mathematician by trade or schooling, he also wrote on many other subjects, such as magic, philosophy, pseudoscience, religion, and literature - he edited the popular The Annotated Alice (Lewis Carroll). At age 94, he is still pursuing his interests and is active in the recreational mathematics community
