Memories of Mervyn Stone

25 January 2021

With much sadness we record the death, on 19 September 2020, of our friend and colleague Mervyn Stone. He made major contributions to our discipline and is an important part of the history of our department. He joined UCL in 1968 and remained for the rest of his working life. After retiring in the 1990s he continued his activities as an emeritus professor.

The document linked below reproduces the obituary of Mervyn written by Rex Galbraith for the Royal Statistical Society, along with some further memories and a list of his publications. Among other things they are a reminder of how active he was in his writing and thinking.
