Format: Hardcover
Fienberg, Hoaglin, Kruskal and Tanur have done an excellent job of putting together a collection of essays describing the life and work of Fred Mosteller. It is not a biography and it is not a collection of technical papers. Instead the authors review technical work they did with or related to Mosteller's work and convey information on their interaction with Fred. It is a pleasant way to learn about the life and varied statistical contributions of Fred Mosteller. There is technical information for the researcher and biographical information for the statistical historians but not too much of one at the expense of the other. At the end of Chapter 7, "Fred at Harvard" there are many nice pictures showing Mosteller over the course of his long and distinguished career.
Fred's long time collaborator John Tukey wrote a brief biography of Mosteller as the first chapter.
It is sad that both Tukey and Mosteller are no longer living.
