The theory of optimal design of experiments as we know it today is built on a solid foundation developed by Jack Kiefer, who formulated and resolved some of the major problems of data collection via experimentation. A principal ingredient in his formulation was statistical efficiency of a design. There are numerous examples of expansive writing in his papers which give his wide perception and share his ideas and methodologies with the reader. A reading of his papers on design is replete with examples of his scholarship, his innovativeness, ingenuity, and strength as a researcher.
