To find out more information about any of these contests (and more exist!), turn to Math Competitions Websites, Directory of Math Contests, and MathArchives, as they were primary sources for the above information. Be aware that some of their links are no longer active, so you may have to do a specific search for that contest.

I do not know who runs the first link. My suspicions are that it is Lester Moskowitz, actuary and former contest member of the 1953 Stuyvesant Math Team. Finally, if you have time, scan this report on the 1970 Stuyvesant Math Team...it is interesting to see what happens to former mathematics contest competitors.
