Because of some conversations he had with Mickey Hart while Hart was doing research for his book, Planet Drum, Dick has often been called the "Official Statistician for the Grateful Dead."

            Dick holds degrees from Princeton University in Civil Engineering (B.S.E.) and Mathematics (A.B.) and from Stanford University in Dance Education (M.A.) and Statistics (Ph.D.) where he studied with Persi Diaconis. His research focuses on the analysis of large data sets and data mining in science and industry.

            In his spare time he is an avid cyclist and swimmer. He also is the founder and bass for the "Diminished Faculty," an a cappella Doo-Wop quartet at Williams College. He was once a professional dancer and teaches Modern Dance during Winter Study at Williams. Dick is the father of four children.


Paul F. Velleman has an international reputation for innovative Statistics education. He is the author and designer of the multimedia statistics CD-ROM ActivStats, for which he was awarded the EDUCOM Medal for innovative uses of computers in teaching statistics, and the ICTCM Award for Innovation in Using Technology in College Mathematics. He also developed the award-winning statistics program, Data Desk, and the Internet site Data and Story Library (DASL) (, which provides data sets for teaching Statistics. Paul coauthored (with David Hoaglin) ABCs of Exploratory Data Analysis.

            Paul has taught Statistics at Cornell University since 1975. He holds an A.B. from Dartmouth College in Mathematics and Social Science, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Statistics from Princeton University, where he studied with John Tukey. His research often deals with statistical graphics and data analysis methods.

            Paul is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

            Out of class, Paul sings baritone in a barbershop quartet. He is the father of two boys.


David E. Bock taught mathematics at Ithaca High School for 35 years. He has taught Statistics at Ithaca High School, Tompkins-Cortland Community College, Ithaca College, and Cornell University. Dave has won numerous teaching awards, including the MAA's Edyth May Sliffe Award for Distinguished High School Mathematics Teaching (twice) and Cornell University's Outstanding Educator Award (three times); he has also been a finalist for New York State Teacher of the Year.
