Is there any site or service that maintains these? A search on the forum didn't seem to turn up any answers. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm planning on getting a Bloomberg Terminal in the (hopefully) not too distant future, which I think would have this data. Are there any other sources that currently have historical analyst earnings estimates? Yahoo Finance seems to only keep the current qtr numbers available. I'm not sure if a Premium subscription would provide access to the historical values.

I think S&P CapIQ provides some limited access to historical forecasts

Agree about Bloomberg, EE used to have it nicely presented several updates ago

a hazy memory of long ago (so long ago that it was First Boston that had to bail Credite Suisse out) seems to rekindle knowledge of two services that did surveys of analyst earnings, one of them was Zack's and I can't remember the other one. Zach's distributed the historical analysts earnings estimates on something called Zip Drives, the other guys distributed them on tape; not cassettes of data tape that were used to back up the whopping 5 MB hard drives available in an IBM 5100 running a 360 mainframe emulator on a 4-bit Intel chip, but actual reels of computer tape that required you to mount them on a tape reader.

Tried to find in my archive/internet, but no luck: in 2003-2007 there was a paper stating that IBES was editing wrong forecasts to improve reputation of analysts. Shortly after that it was sold to Reuters.
