    Ralph Warburton is a big name in my house, still around at 95. As for what schools are popular with Jewish students you always hear jokes about BU but I guess they are top
    amongst the private schools anyway. Florida #1 with the public U's

    I'm surprised near Boston that Brandeis is not above BU. Its basically a Jewish school, sorta like Duke is Methodist, Wake Forest is Baptist, etc. By that, used to be affiliated with those religions but now pretty much doesn't matter.

    Some of you may remember a T&F stat guy named Dave Carey. Dave was a math / physics PhD who worked at FermiLab (like JRM). He helped Scott Davis do the AR Women's Progression lists and then they did the 2nd edition of the AR Progression together with Don Potts.

    Dave Carey and Ted Kacinski were PhD students together. He loved to tell that story.
