Michael P. Cohen, Phyllis Curtiss, David Hitchcock, Alan Hutson, Wendy Martinez, John McKenzie, and Margaret Nemeth met at JSM 2017 in Baltimore and discussed the formation of the ASA History of Statistics Interest Group. The group wrote a draft charter and obtained 156 names for the petition to form an ASA interest group. The Council of Sections approved the charter and the History of Statistics Interest Group was formed in December 2017 with Wendy Martinez serving as the chair for 2017–2018.
The purpose of the History of Statistics Interest Group is to bring together individuals and groups who have an active interest in the history of statistics, to share information and research about the history of statistics, and to provide resources for educators and researchers.
