Fred Smith 1934-2019

Emeritus Professor Fred Smith passed away in December 2019. Fred was a big part of the statistical community in the University of Southampton, which he joined in 1968. He was active in the fields of survey sampling, and time series, and was President of the Royal Statistical Society from 1991-93. He was an inspirational teacher, and always willing to discuss the way that the methods worked. Although he retired some time ago, he was a regular visitor to the university for special seminars. He will be much missed, and our thoughts are with his family at this time. For more details visit the Royal Statistical Society website
