Allan R. Sampson, 1945 - 2021

We are saddened to announce that Professor Allan Sampson passed away on January 30, 2021. Allan was a driving force in establishing our department, and he served as its founding Chair from 1997 to 2000. Since that time, he remained an active researcher, teacher, mentor to many students and faculty, and a cherished colleague. We miss him dearly.

The Department of Statistics hosted a virtual event in honor of Dr. Sampson on Friday February 19, 2021 via Zoom. Click here to view the printed program.
