Abstract

Stephen Elliott Fienberg was the founding editor of the Annual Review of Statistics and Its Application. Steve had an outsized personality and a passion for statistical science that was quite unique, and he combined these with his legendary energy to provide a remarkable level of leadership for the statistical science community, and a sweeping vision of the importance of statistical arguments for science, health and policy. The editorial team of the Annual Review of Statistics and Its Application is working hard to carry on his legacy for the journal. In this article we highlight some of his contributions through the voices of his students and collaborators. It is by no means a comprehensive assessment of his scholarship, but we hope it provides a window into his impact and influence on several generations of scholars. As Reid & Stigler (2017) wrote in Volume 4, "his lasting imprint on the science of statistics and its application defies simple categorization."
