A tribute to George E.P. Box
George Edward Pelham (G.E.P.) Box, “George”, or “Pel” (for those very close to him), passed away on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at home at the age of 93. He was one of the greatest statistical minds of the 20th century, shared his wisdom with many and will be missed by many.
Wiley are proud to be the publishers of his memoirs, An Accidental Statistician. Here we pay tribute to his life and work. With the kind permission of the Box family, StatisticsViews.com hosted training videos that Box made with Søren Bisgaard and Conrad Fung on designing industrial experiments back in 1990.
Here you can read accounts by those who knew him - his former pupil, Professor Bovas Abraham and Julian Champkin, Editor of Significance.
