The birth of the Bogleheads
The birth of the Bogleheads

Back in 1998, a small group of Vanguard fund shareholders began discussing investments on a Morningstar message board known as Vanguard Diehards. When newbies posted questions, regular Diehards responded with sensible and helpful answers. As word spread, more investors flocked to the message board, and an online community -- soon renamed the Bogleheads, in honor of Vanguard's founder -- was born.
