Thanks in QUALITY, PRODUCTIVITY, AND COMPETITIVE POSITION

"I am thankful for unusual privilege to work as apprentice to a numer of great men, such as Walter A. Shewhart, founder of the statistical control of quality, and with Harold F. Dodge, and with George Edwards, all of the Bell Telephone Laboratories, all noe deceased. Equally valued is apprenticeship under other esteemed colleagues, such as Morris H Hansen, Philip M. Hauser, Frederick Franklin Stephan, General Leslie E. Simon, Eugene L. Grant, Holbrook Working, Franz J. Kaliman, P. C. Mahalanobis.

This book could never have seen print without the dedicated skill and perseverance of my secretary Cecelia S. Kilian. She has assisted me now 28 years in a lively statistical practice, and has constructed out of scribblings on scribblings written on my lap on aeroplanes one version after another of notes to use as text for my seminars, and finally this book as the reader finds it.

Help has come also from many kind friends that have read pages of text in earlier versions, with suggestings for clarity. Notes of thanks appear in the text for specific contributions.

--QUALITY, PRODUCTIVITY, AND COMPETITIVE POSITION by W. Edwards Deming, 1982, p. iv.
