::: Hermann Otto Hirschfeld Lecture

Hermann Otto Hirschfeld Lecture more about Hermann Otto Hirschfeld
In memory of Hermann Otto Hirschfeld The Lecture Series is named after remarkable German-American statistician Hermann Otto Hartley (known as HOH). Born H.O. Hirschfeld, he completed his PhD in mathematics at Humboldt-Universität in 1934. Shortly thereafter, HOH, who was of Jewish descent, emigrated to England where he also changed his name a few years later. He worked at Cambridge, Shofield, and University College, London until 1953 when he again emigrated by taking a position in the United States at Iowa State College. In 1963 he founded Texas A&M University's Institute of Statistics and was the driving force behind its expansion during the next two decades. After his retirement from Texas A&M in 1977, he continued to work until his death in 1980, the last two years as a full professor at Duke University. Throughout his career, HOH advocated for and helped establish statistics as an important and autonomous scientific discipline. His major research was in the area of survey sampling, but he also contributed to mathematical programming and optimization, as well as working on the estimation of variance components and in the field of biometrics. HOH served as the 74th president of the ASA (American Statistical Association). In this spirit, the Hermann Otto Hirschfeld Lectures at Humboldt-Universität are given since 2003 in memory of an excellent scientist and an advocate of quantitative methods. More about HOH
