PASSIONATE STATISTICIAN: FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE
Uses applied statistics to disprove the medical sssumptions of her day.
Using fatality counts from the Crimean War, Nightingale develops a
progressive series of statistical diagrams that reveal startling
information: most soldiers did not die of their wounds, as reported, but in
army hospitals, from diseases related to poor hygiene. When futher data
show army death rates twice that of the civilian population, Nightingale
traces the cause to overcrowded, disease-riodden barracks.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
