Fred at Harvard
In his biography of Fred Mosteller (Chapter 1), John Tukey notes that, after receiving a Ph.D. from Princeton, Fred spent his entire professional career at Harvard University, and in the process chaired four different Harvard departments. Thus it is no surprise that many of Fred’s research and educational projects are inextricably intertwined with people and activities that have had some connection with Harvard. As we reread the other chapters of this volume, we thought again of Fred’s roles as an educator, organizer, and researcher at Harvard; and in the end we chose to stitch together a quilt-like story about these activities and their impact on other people.
