A celebration of the life of Harvey Goldstein

The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is pleased to announce a joint event with the British Academy to honour the internationally renowned statistician, Harvey Goldstein FBA, who sadly passed away a year ago.
Chaired by Sir David Spiegelhalter, you will hear from Harvey’s close friends, colleagues and collaborators about his career achievements and contributions to statistics.
Harvey was an internationally renowned statistician and social science researcher whose work had huge impact in many different academic disciplines. He is also well-known for bringing statistical expertise into the public realm, including writing at length on the uses and abuses of league tables both in education and other fields. He was an active member of the RSS throughout his career, having served on RSS Council and twice as joint editor of the Series A Journal. He was awarded the Society’s Guy Medal in Silver (1998) and made a Fellow of the British Academy in 1996.
Harvey is described by colleagues as ‘always extremely generous with his time and approachable’ and we hope you will join us for a live celebration of his life and work.
