One drawback of the personal approach taken in this book is its exclusively American perspective. The people who were my colleagues at Berkeley and Stanford, whom I encountered at meetings, with whom I served on committees, with very few exceptions lived and worked in the United States. Had I lived in England, I would have written instead about Maurice Bartlett, George Barnard, Henry Daniels, Maurice Kendall, and other British colleagues. Similarly, the organization with which I was involved was the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the journal in which I published and for which I acted in various editorial capacities was the Annals. Had I lived in England, I would have more likely been involved with the Royal Statistical Society and its journals.
