Dennis Lindley Passes Away

The loss of Dennis Lindley, yesterday, will be received with sadness by Bayesians - econometricians included.

Dennis was a major driving force in the formalization and dissemination of Bayesian thought.

Two posts that comment on his many contributions can be found here and here.

I recall presenting a Bayesian paper at a statistics conference in New Zealand in the 1970's, with Dennis in the front row. It was an unnerving experience!
