Julia A. Norton Receives Carver Medal
Julia A. Norton, Professor Emerita in the Department of Statistics and Biostatistics at California State University, East Bay in Hayward, California, USA has received the 2010 Carver Medal from the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). The presentation of the medal will take place August 10, 2010 at a special ceremony during the IMS Annual Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Professor Norton receives the award for contributions to the IMS throughout her career, and especially for her conscientious and pivotal service as IMS Treasurer during the period when the IMS Business Office was moved from California to Ohio.
The Carver Medal was created by the IMS in 2002 in honor of Harry C. Carver, Founding Editor of the Annals of Mathematical Statistics and one of the founders of the IMS. The medal is for exceptional service specifically to the IMS and is open to any member of the IMS who has not previously been elected President. Created in 1933, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics is a member organization which fosters the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. The IMS has 4500 active members throughout the world.
