Celebrating 50 years of Statistical research

Has any university department ever opened its account with such a statistically significant event as that which launched the Warwick Statistics Department? On Tuesday 9th October 1972, in the first serious lecture given to a group of 45 second-year mathematicians, entitled Possibilities & Probabilities, the founding professor tossed a 2p coin high in the air. The coin descended to the vinyl floor of lecture theatre L5, spun as a perfect sphere, and, in full view, slowly came to rest on its edge! Stunned silence turned into massive applause. No further publicity was necessary – truly the Statistics Department had arrived in style!
