    Ever since Professor Fogarty invited me to give this lecture, I have been wondering why he picked me when I reflect that Dr. Geary, in whose honour and name these lectures are being given, and Professor Sir Roy Alien, who gave the first Geary lecture last year, are both illustrious names in the world of statistics. They belong to the generation in which the foundations of the subject were, with immense labour, being laid, and indeed hacked up again and relaid several times. Dr. Geary’s work has such an international reputatioaa as to make any further description or comment on my part merely presumptuous: his early pioneering work as director of the Central Statistics Office here, his work at the United ~ations and later as first Director of the newly formed Economic Research Institute in Dublin. To have my name linked in this way today with Geary’s is an occasion of which I can well feel proud.
