The Stanford Statistics Department

  • E. L. Lehmann

The Stanford statistics department was founded in 1948, ten years after Neyman started a statistics program in Berkeley but seven years before that program became an independent department. Since its beginning, the Stanford department has been a friendly rival—we often compete for the same students and the same faculty—but also an invaluable source of strength for our Berkeley group. The rivalry is accentuated by the fact that for many years now our departments have been ranked as the top two statistics departments in the country, sometimes in one order, sometimes the other, and sometimes tied.
