Those who use or know about the Prais-Winsten 
procedure implemented in the Stata command -prais- 
may be interested to learn of the death last month of Professor 
Winsten. A capsule biography in the spirit 
of the vignettes in the Stata 9 manuals follows
my signature. (Graham Upton, University of Essex, 
most helpfully supplied some crucial details.)
