I don't have a place or date, but some one should really add the quote:

“All models are wrong, some models are useful” George Box.

Quite a famous one I believe.

Marriage?[edit]

Current text reads:

Box married Joan Fisher, the second of Ronald Fisher's five daughters. In 1978, Joan Fisher Box published a biography of Ronald Fisher, with substantial collaboration of Box.[2] Box married Claire Quist in 1985.

That's two marriages without any mention of a divorce, widowhood, or otherwise what happened to the first marriage. Not being an expert on his life, I don't know how to resolve, but wanted to flag — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:4898:80E8:EE31:0:0:0:2 (talk) 21:27, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
