Sir Francis Galton, (1822–1911) was an English polymath, psychologist, anthropologist, eugenicist, tropical explorer, geographer, inventor, meteorologist, proto-geneticist, psychometrician, and statistician. He was knighted in 1909. He produced over 340 papers and books, and created the statistical concept of correlation and widely promoted regression toward the mean. He was the first to apply statistical methods to the study of human differences and inheritance of intelligence, and introduced the use of questionnaires and surveys for collecting data on human communities. He was a pioneer in eugenics, coining that term and the phrase "nature versus nurture".
