He was elected member of the International Statistical Institute in 1985.
He has been Chairman of the European Regional Section of the IASC from 1992 to 1996 and a Fellow
of the Royal Statistical Society, underlining his commitment to international activities.
He was an active member of the French Statistical Society (SFdS). With his open-minded approach to all aspects of statistics, Antoine has worked hard to build bridges between English-speaking modellers, the Dutch school and French-style data analysts. His 1989 article in JRSS C with Peter van der Heijden and Jan de Leeuw and his articles comparing Goodman's Association model with Correspondence Analysis: discussion of Goodman's article for JASA (1991) and his contribution to "Multivariate Analysis: Futures directions 2" (Cuadras and Rao eds. 1993) are worth noting. A keen student of the history of statistics, he was heavily involved in the activities of the SFdS "Socio-History of Statistics and Probability" group. He traced the history of the "Journal de la Société de Statistique de Paris" in an article for the Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences.
A passionate and fascinating speaker, Antoine de Falguerolles was a highly engaging and erudite character. His colleagues will greatly miss Antoine de Falguerolles, in France and beyond.
