Venn, John
(1834–1923)
English logician and probability theorist. Born in Hull, Venn was educated at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he became a Fellow in 1857, and President in 1903. His work The Logic of Chance (1867) is an early exploration of the frequency theory of probability . His Symbolic Logic (1881) was hugely influential as the first successful formulation of the algebraic approach to logic pioneered by the mathematician Boole.
