From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robin L. Plackett (3 September 1920 – 23 June 2009[1]) was a statistician best known for his contributions to the history of statistics and to experimental design, most notably the Plackett–Burman designs.

He was the first professor of statistics at Newcastle University and held the post until his retirement in 1983. In 1987 the Royal Statistical Society awarded him the Guy Medal in Gold, having awarded him both the bronze and silver medals earlier in his career.

He authored several books on statistics, including Principles of Regression Analysis (1960), The Analysis of Categorical Data (1974) and An Introduction to the Interpretation of Quantal Responses in Biology (1979, with P. S. Hewlett).
