Any experiment may be regarded as forming an individual of a “population” of experiments which might be performed under the same conditions. A series of experiments is a sample drawn from this population. 
The Student t-Test on the Mean
This is a famous example of how statistical methods can be contrived to overcome a problem of inadequate (in fact, missing) information.
Statistical Decision Techniques
Empirical science does not consist of a series of nonrecurring isolated events or characteristics relating to a particular individual or entity, but rather of reproducible experiences, a collection
The Origin of Confidence Limits
In the history of ideas it is frequently possible, with the advantage of hindsight, to discern earlier examples of new concepts. Their later appreciation often relies on the clarification of thought
An extension of the validity of »Student»-Fisher's law of distribution
Abstract One of the fundamental laws of the distribution of errors within modern theoretical statistics is the »Student»-Fisher law of distribution, which answers the question:
Sampling distribution of the variance

TLDR
The conclusion is that, except from normally distributed populations, this sampling distribution of the variance is more difficult to catch than ordinary stated in application papers.
On the Mathematical Foundations of Theoretical Statistics
Centre of Location. That abscissa of a frequency curve for which the sampling errors of optimum location are uncorrelated with those of optimum scaling. (9.)
Fisher’s Testing Methodology
We saw in Sect. 1.3 that Student in 1908a brought a new point of view to statistical inference by determining the small-sample (exact) distribution of what he called z, now called t, under the
Test statistics and p-values
TLDR
It is pointed out that the traditional notion of test statistic is too narrow, and a natural generalization is proposed that is arguably maximal, which is restricted to simple statistical hypotheses.
Why is S a Biased Estimate of σ?
This article outlines an experiment that leads one to discover and verify that S is a biased estimator of σ.
Two cheers for P-values?

TLDR
P-values are a practical success but a critical failure, and what, if anything, might be said in their favour is considered.
