In my \documentclass{article}, I would like the last few pages (in essence appendix) to be without numbers, but retain the header (\thispagestyle{empty}) is so out of the question). Is there a way to turn off only page numbering? I use fancyhdr to construct my headers.

How stupid of me. After I submitted my question, my search led me to this page that solves the problem by using \pagenumbering{gobble}.

A couple of years too late to say this perhaps but "not stupid at all, sir!". You pretty much just saved my (academic) life! – drN Feb 28 '13 at 13:35
@Roman: It's a good idea to mark your own answer as accepted if it solves your problem. – Lii Sep 2 '13 at 17:30
