The notions of correlation and regression were introduced in the work of the eugenicist, Franci Galton. Galton lived for over fifty years at 42 Rutland Gate (Knightsbridge) where a blue plaque commemorates him. The UCL Department of Biology houses the Galton collection, part of which is on display online.
