Neyman, of the Department of Statistics, University College, London, delivered three lectures and was the leading speaker at six conferences, all held at the Graduate School of the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington. The lectures were on the theory of probability, on probability and experimentation, and on the testing of statistical hypotheses. The conferences dealt with randomized and systematic arrangements of field experiments, plant breeding, sampling in social problems, analysis of time series, statistical estimation, and confidence intervals.
