  Human Intelligence: Karl Pearson
Karl Pearson developed some of the central techniques of modern statistics.
In the early 1900's Pearson became interested in the work of Francis Galton, who wanted to find statistical relationships to explain how biological characteristics were passed down through generations.
Pearson's research laid much of the foundation for 20th-century statistics, defining the meanings of correlation, regression analysis, and standard deviation.

Pearson correlation assumes that the two variables are measured on at least interval scales.
A system of distributions proposed by Karl Pearson (e.g., see Hahn and Shapiro, 1967, pages 220-224) consists of seven solutions (of 12 originally enumerated by Pearson) to a differential equation which approximate a wide range of distributions of different shapes.
The Pearson residual is computed as the raw residual (y-m), scaled by the estimated standard deviation of y.

 Karl Pearson Summary
Pearson also formulated a method, known as the chi-square, of measuring the likelihood that an observed relation is in fact due to chance, and used this method to determine the significance of the statistical difference between groups.

Pearson became the Galton Professor of Eugenics in 1911, and headed a new department of applied statistics as well as the biometric laboratory and a eugenics laboratory, established to study the genetic factors affecting the physical and mental improvement or impairment of future generations.

 Sample Chapter for Porter, T.M.: Karl Pearson: The Scientific Life in a Statistical Age.
Pearson optimistically anticipated that in the end the governors would recognize their need for his tools, and in a way this proved right, but he could not have felt himself, in his own time, supported by the crushing force of modernity.
Pearson derived from eugenics also a sense of connectedness with the deeper purposes of life, a pantheistic wholeness recalling his early admiration for Spinoza that was hard to reconcile with the positivist's alienation from nature.
Pearson's life, the story of an aggressive, angular, and deeply self-conscious scientist, is also an account of the changing possibilities of the scientific self in an age that has inclined to confine it and to isolate it from other aspects of this sometimes passionate process we call living, by making it selfless and objective.

Karl Pearson, founder of modern statistics, came to this field by way of passionate early studies of philosophy and cultural history as well as ether physics and graphical geometry.
Pearson sought to reconcile reason with enthusiasm and to achieve the impersonal perspective of science without sacrificing complex individuality.
It focuses on the early part of his career in an effort to show how he was drawn to the study of statistics and eventually conceived it as the key to a new philosophy of nature, which was to become his life's work.

Neither Fisher nor Karl Pearson was a stranger to scientific controversy, and each man had used letters published in Nature for public disputation.
Although Pearson and Fisher alluded to some of their previous quarrels in their 1935 letters, the primary issue was the complaint of a working scientist who opined that the statistical tests developed by the two men were largely irrelevant to scientific practice.
Pearson's and Fisher's letters were replies to an invitation to "some statistician of international repute" contained in a letter on statistical tests that appeared in Nature on August 3, 1935.

 Karl Pearson on Mendelian Genetics and his Chi-Square Tests
The Victorian mathematician and scientist, Karl Pearson (1856-1937) who was one of the principal architects of the modern theory of statistics, was interested in applying his developing mathematical-statistical models to a network of various theories of inheritance from 1895 to 1910.
Before the turn of the twentieth century, Pearson considered ancestral, alternative and exclusive theories of heredity, based on nineteenth century ideas of blending and non-blending theory of inheritance, which were underpinned by continuous variation.
Pearson's alleged denunciation of Mendelism was promulgated by Bateson and was perpetuated throughout the course of the twentieth century.
