Let R[ x ] be the usual algebra of all polynomials in the indeterminate x over the field of real numbers R, and let φ be a linear operator mapping R[ x ] into R[ x ]. In this paper we show that if φ maps every orthogonal polynomial sequence into an orthogonal polynomial sequence, then φ is defined by φ(xn) = s(ax + b)n, n = 0, 1, 2,..., where s, a, and b belong to R, s ≠ 0, and a ≠ 0.
