Babson, Roger (Ward)


Statistician, business forecaster, and writer, born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA. An indifferent student, he was pushed by his father to study bookkeeping and engineering. He set up the Business Statistical Organization Inc (1904) and published the Composite Circular and the Babsonchart, which advised his clients on when to buy and sell their stocks, bonds, and commodities. He established the Babson Institute (later Babson College) in 1919, and in 1927 he founded Webber College (FL) to train women for business. His statistical compilations were of great importance to a generation of businessmen during the pre-computer era. He published some 40 books, mostly on statistical and financial matters.
