    The history and development of minimum variance unbiased estimators

    hello there every1.

    i would really appreciate it if someone could give me a quick run down of the development of MVUE with regards to estimating a maximum of a sample of data. i am reuqired to write a project on the HISTORY of the German Tank Counting Problem which makes use of MVUE. i am struggling to find the exact statisticans who, in world war 2, came up with the method and estimated the number of tanks the germans were producing. any useful references would be awesome.

    thanks a lot
