This chapter presents a reprint of Hald (1981), containing a detailed discussion of Thiele's contributions to statistics and a brief summary of some of his contributions to other areas. Topics covered include skew distributions, cumulants, estimation methods and *k* statistics, the linear model with normally distributed errors, analysis of variance, and a time series model combining Brownian motion and the linear model with normally distributed errors. Thiele's work is placed in a historical perspective and explained in modern terms.
