    On behalf of the INFORMS History & Traditions Committee, I'm pleased to announce the availability of 6 new videos representing interviews of luminaries in the field of Operations Research and Management Science.  All of these interviews were conducted at the recent INFORMS conference in Nashville, TN, in November. These videos provide great insights into the history of the field.
