The American Statistical Association (ASA) has selected David Draper, professor and chair of applied mathematics and statistics, as a 2007 Fellow of the ASA. Nominated by their peers, ASA Fellows are recognized by the association as "members of established reputation who have made outstanding contributions in some aspect of statistical work."

Given annually, this honor is bestowed on no more than one-third of 1 percent of the ASA membership. The 2007 Fellows will be honored at an award ceremony at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Salt Lake City on July 31, 2007.

The ASA is a scientific and educational society founded in 1839. Its mission is to promote excellence in the application of statistical science across the wealth of human endeavor.
