Kendall (1907–1983) worked for the British Chamber of Shipping, then joined the London School of Economics, later directing a computer consultancy company, and then the World Fertility Survey. He revised Yule's classic textbook, then wrote the first comprehensive and advanced book on statistics. Many other books followed, as he did research in many areas including rank correlation, time series, and sample surveys.
