Officially, Ted was our senior statistical reviewer, and he was called in primarily when peer reviewers raised questions about methods and analyses. His formal title reflected his role at the Veterans Administration (VA) for 40 years as an analyst on evaluation teams investigating outcomes for veterans with mental illness and later as an administrator of national research projects at VA headquarters. His work at the VA took him from Erie, Pennsylvania, where he began his career as a social worker, to St. Cloud, Minnesota, and Lyons, New Jersey, and finally to the VA office in Washington, D.C., where he worked until his retirement in 1997. One of his first papers was published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 1971.
