Diehards History (--> Wiki)

Post by simba »

An expanded version of this page is available at The Bogleheads Wiki.

Diehards reunions/reports/pictures
Diehards 8 is scheduled to be held September 30th to October 2nd , 2009 in Dallas/Ft.Worth, TX.
The official announcement was made here.
History of Vanguard Diehards/Bogleheads
As per the Wiley website
Bogleheads came into being in 1997 when Morningstar, the mutual fund research company, established a "Conversation Forum" at Morningstar.com dedicated to The Vanguard Group. Almost immediately, the site exploded with messages from ardent "Vanguard Diehards" (the Bogleheads' official name) expressing admiration of and appreciation to John Bogle, founder and retired chairman of Vanguard.
As a fellow diehard said
The forum(s) have a well-earned reputation as one of the best investment resources on the internet because of it’s long history of attracting and helping newer, inexperienced investors. The seeds of success have grown from the fundamental teachings of our mentor, Jack Bogle. I feel our mission has been, and continues to be, to pass along the wisdom of Mr. Bogle.
