Presentation 5B2. ISI in the Postwar Period - Planting the Seeds of Statistical Education

Daniel Berze (The Netherlands)


Presentation Abstract

This paper will examine the foresight, commitment and academic and administrative expertise manifested by various individuals and institutions that combined to create an atmosphere and infrastructures in which statistical education could develop as a discipline in its own right.
Particular attention will be focused on the development of statistical education activities in the International Statistical Institute's postwar period, with particular reference to ISEC Calcutta and the former ISEC in Beirut, and ISI Statistical Education Committee, forerunner to the present International Association for Statistical Education.
