President of the Royal Statistical Society


President of the Royal Statistical Society

The President of the Royal Statistical Society is the head of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS). This is not an honorary position; the president actively oversees the running of the Society and chairs its council meetings. In recent years, almost all presidents have been nominated following many years' service to the Society, although some have been nominated to mark their eminence in society generally, such as Harold Wilson.

There has only been one contested election in the Society's history; in 1977, many fellows objected to the nomination by the Council of Campbell Adamson because he was not a statistician and was said to have made derogatory comments about statisticians. Henry Wynn was nominated by several fellows (including Adrian Smith, himself later president, and Philip Dawid) and won the election.
