# putting the title in the header for an article

For various reasons, I need to put my name and title in the header of a LaTeX document. The reason is I have a page limit and need the extra space which is taken up by \maketitle. Does anyone know how to do this? For reference, I am using the standard amsart document class.

What I have tried so far is to use the package fancyhdr and then writing

\pagestyle{fancy}

\fancyhf{}



in the preamble, but I cannot get the header to appear on the first page (the desired header appears on subsequent pages). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Including \thispagestyle{fancy} adds the title to the first page:

## Code:

\documentclass{amsart}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\pagestyle{fancy}

\fancyhf{}


That'll teach me not to guess at solutions!! :-) I don't know for sure, but would guess (opps, here I go again) that the page style is set to plain initially so that the header/footer does not show up on the title page (which is normally the desired behavior). –  Peter Grill Nov 6 '12 at 1:59
