R.A.Fisher (1890-1962) retired from the Arthur Balfour Professorship of Genetics in the University of Cambridge in September 1957. In his last year he only admitted a single student to the one-year course in the Department of Genetics: A.W.F.Edwards. Professor Edwards will recall the events of that year, how and why he was attracted to the possibility of studying under Fisher, and the contact he subsequently had with him. He will also outline the influence of Fisher’s work on his own interests, particularly in connection with statistical inference and evolutionary theory.
