How to remove/fix the header "CONTENTS" in unnumbered chapter Acknowledgments?

Just simply add the command \chaptermark{Chapter name} after \addcontentsline, this should work:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter*{Acknowledgments}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Acknowledgments}
\chaptermark{Acknowledgments}
\lipsum
\lipsum
\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum
\lipsum
\end{document}
  • How about removing the header entirely from unnumbered chapter? – Sukan Apr 14 '18 at 14:41
  • For removing the header look into page styles. – Oleg Lobachev Apr 14 '18 at 15:16

Use \frontmatter and \mainmatter instead of doing stuff by hand.

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\renewcommand{\chaptername}{}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\chapter*{Preface}
\lipsum
\tableofcontents
\chapter{Acknowledgment}
\lipsum
\chapter{Prolog}
\lipsum
\mainmatter
\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum
\end{document}
