The current issue of Statistics in Medicine has an article that may be
of interest to any history buffs in the group. Here's the abstract and
reference.


We present an unpublished, possibly unsent, memorandum written by Major
Greenwood in 1928 that is of historical importance. It raises three
issues, namely, the profile of medical statistics in 1928, the
development of mathematical statistics in the U.K., and the staffing of
his own department. Some of these issues are still relevant today. We
discuss each of them against the historical background of the first
quarter of the 20th century. Some additional biographical details
relevant to the understanding of the memorandum are provided in an
Appendix. Copyright (c) 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

KEY WORDS: Epidemiology; LSHTM; Major Greenwood; Medical Statistics; MRC
