你只知道他是數理經濟學的名家 --這方面主要論文少而精( 六--七篇)
可以知道都引用到Harold Hotelling 的"統計教育"之見解
事實上 他應該是位奇才 根據附的這篇 他進美國National Academy of Science 榮譽榜是經濟學和統計學共同推薦的
Hotelling, H., Bartky, W. Deming, W.E.,Friedman, M., Hoel, P.(1948). The Teaching of Statistics, A Report of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics Committee on the Teaching of Statistics, Ann. Math. Stat. 19, 95-115

Harold Hotelling’s review of the 1st edition of
Ronald Fisher’s Statistical Methods for Research Workers (1925) is considered by many to be the most influential statistics book of the twentieth century. Yet according to Fisher’s biographer, “The book did not receive a single good review.” Box (1978, p. 130).
It is debateable whether Box’s generalisation applied to all the British reviews but it certainly did not apply to the review by the American statistician, Harold Hotelling. He reviewed the book on his own initiative and on the basis of it became Fisher’s earliest fan. Some spectators found Hotelling’s enthusiasm excessive. Arne Fisher, the Danish-American actuary, disapproved of “adoring disciples.” See Arne Fisher letter to RAF: correspondence p.310.
Harold Hotelling (1895-1973) completed a PhD at
Hotelling was also a distinguished economic theorist and so it is appropriate that the National Academy of Science memoir was a joint effort from Erich Lehmann and Kenneth.Arrow, a Hotelling student and Nobel laureate in Economics.
