Description
Some mathematical tables have been compiled to fulfill specific needs of statisticians. For example, John Rice Miner (1892-1965) wished to ease the task of calculating formulae for partial correlation that involved terms in the square root of the quantity (1 – r^2). Toward that end, he compiled tables of values of (1-r^2) and of the square root of that quantity. Minor had obtained his A.B. from the University of Michigan, worked as a human computer, and became an associate in biometry and vital statistics in the School of Hygiene and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Johns Hopkins University Press published these tables in 1922. Miner would get his Sc.D. from Johns Hopkins, become a member of the faculty there, and be elected a Fellow of the American Statistical Association.
