IMS Council has approved the nomination of Edward Waymire for the 2014 Carver Medal as recommended by the Committee to Select the Carver Award.

The Carver Medal was created by the IMS in 2002 in honor of Harry C. Carver, Founding Editor of the Annals of Mathematical Statistics and one of the founders of the IMS. The medal is for exceptional service specifically to the IMS and is open to any member of the IMS who has not previously been elected President.
