Abstract:

When William Feller was born in 1906, Lebesgue measure had just been invented, and Frechet was to introduce measure on an abstract space about ten years later. Thus, the technical basis of modern mathematical probability was developed about the time of Fellers early childhood. Since that time the subject has been transformed, by no one more than by Feller himself, into an essential part of mathematics, contributing to other parts as well as drawing from them.
