In her memory, the department established the Evelyn Fix prize, which is annually awarded to the most promising doctoral student in applied statistics. 10. Harold Hotelling (1895–1973) My return from Guam coincided with the conclusion of the first session of the Berkeley Symposium in August 1945. The talk that had made the greatest impression was the opening talk given by Harold Hotelling of Columbia University on a topic specially requested by Neyman, who five years earlier had heard a lecture by Hotelling that deeply impressed him.

From our studies and reports, it soon became evident that the accuracy of the bombing was unsatisfactory, and pictures from later reconnaissance flights showed that in fact the damage to the targeted factories had been 8.
As a first step, “to mark the end of the war and to stimulate the return to theoretical research,” in June 1945 he proposed a Symposium on Mathematical Statistics and Probability, which took place August 13–18, 1945. With few exceptions, the speakers came from California, principally from other campuses of the University of California, because Neyman’s funds were limited, and some invited speakers had been unable to make it on such short notice. However, since some money was left over after the August symposium, Neyman decided to add a sequel, which took place January 27–29, 1946.
