The Humanistic Mathematics Network Newsletter (HMNN) was founded by Alvin White in the summer of 1987. The Newsletter was later renamed The Humanistic Mathematics Network Journal (HMNJ). The last issue of the HMNJ was published in 2004. This is the open access digital archive of the full run of the HMNN/HMNJ (1987-2004).

This journal does not accept new content. A related current journal is the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics.
