Charlotte Kipling, née Harrison (7 June 1919 – 9 August 1992) was a statistician and ichthyologist. After reading up on economics at Newnham College in Cambridge, she went on to be a cypherist during World War II. She was later hired as a statistician at Ferry House, Windermere, carrying out calculations for the staff at the Freshwater Biological Association (FBA). This sparked her interest in fish biology, and led her to publish thirty-two papers on various subjects about fish biology, including changes in fish population of char, pike, and perch in Windermere from 1941–1982. She was later deemed a fellow of the Statistical Society and a member of the Institute of Biology.[1]
