Letter from George (Barnard)

Memory Lane: (2 yrs) Sept. 30, 2012George Barnard sent me this note on hearing of my Lakatos Prize. He was to have been at my Lakatos dinner at the LSE (March 17, 1999)—winners are permitted to invite ~2-3 guests*—but he called me at the LSE at the last minute to say he was too ill to come to London.  Instead we had a long talk on the phone the next day, which I can discuss at some point. The main topics were likelihoods and error probabilities. {I have 3 other Barnard letters, with real content, that I might dig out some time.)

*My others were Donald Gillies and Hasok Chang
