American Statistical Association Names 59 Fellows for 2007

The 2007 ASA Fellows include US and International recipients, including 10 from the National Capital Area, six from California and four each from Indiana and Washington. A complete list of the honorees, by state, follows the body of the release.


The American Statistical Association (ASA), the nation's preeminent professional statistical society, today announced the election of 59 of its members as Fellows of the Association. The recipients received the honor in recognition of their outstanding professional contributions to and leadership in the field of statistical science. The Fellows will be presented at a ceremony on July 31 at the Association's 167th annual Joint Statistical Meetings in Salt Lake City.

"The ASA Fellows designation honors the extraordinary members of the statistics profession," said Mary Ellen Bock, ASA president. "The collective outstanding contributions of this year's Fellows from academia, government and industry have invigorated the statistics discipline in education, research, administration and service."

The 2007 Fellows come from 25 states and several countries around the globe. Ten Fellows are from the National Capital area; California had six honorees, and Washington and Indiana each have four Fellows. A list of the 2007 Fellows by state follows this release.

The designation of Fellow has been a superlative honor in ASA for more than 90 years. According to the association by-laws, each year the Committee on Fellows can elect no more than one-third of one percent of the total ASA membership as Fellows. Individuals are nominated for the honor by fellow members and must have an established reputation and made outstanding contributions in some aspect of statistical work to be selected.

The Committee on Fellows evaluates candidates' contributions to the advancements of statistics, giving due weight to publications, the positions held by the candidates in the organizations in which they are employed, activities within the Association, membership and attainments in other societies, and other professional activities. Selection committee members were Robert M. Bell, Chair; Demissie Alemayehu, Roderick Joseph Little, Roxy L. Peck, Bonnie K. Ray, Nozer D. Singpurwalla, John H. Thompson, Preston J. Waite, and Grace L. Yang.
