Note:From his unique perspective, renowned statistician and educator Frederick Mosteller describes many of the projects and events in his long career. From humble beginnings in western Pennsylvania to becoming the founding chairman ofHarvard Universitys D epartment of Statistics and beyond, he inspired many statisticians, scientists, and students with his unabashed pragmatism, creative thinking, and zest for both learning and teaching. This candid account offersfresh insights into the qualities that made M osteller a superb teacher, a prolific scholar, a respected leader, and a valued advisor. A special feature of the book is its chapter-length insider accounts of work on the pre-electionpolls of 1948, statistical aspects of the Kinsey report on sexual beha vior in the human male, mathematical learning theory, authorship of the disputed Federalist papers, safety of anesthetics, and a wide-ranging examination of theColeman report on equality of educational opportunity. This volume is a companion to Selected P apers of Frederick Mosteller (Springer, 2006) and A Statistical Model: Frederick Mostellers Contributions to Statistics, Science, andPublic Policy (Springer-Verlag, 1990). Frederick Mosteller (19162006) was Roger I. Lee Professor of Mathematical Statistic s at Harvard University. His manuscript was unfinished at his death and has been updated
