This volume, based on his statistical correspondence, is a biographical account of his life and work which, through his collaboration with R.A.Fisher and Karl and Egon Pearson, came to fundamentally influence the development of modern statistical thinking. It will provide insight into the ferment of statistical ideas discussed by Gosset and his co-workers. In particular, it sheds new light on the way in which Gossets work (at the St.James Gate Brewery owned by Guinness) and his interest in the statistics of small samples came to profoundly influence Fishers early work.
