In Memory of the Two Best Professors I Ever Had

Is it by coincidence that my two favorite teachers happen to be statisticians?

Is there something about being teachers of statistics that made these two gifted men so inherently likeable, so open-hearted and generous with their time?

It's unlikely they ever met. But now it seems strange that I never even thought to ask.
