Abstract: In retirement, Fisher went to live in Adelaide, South Australia, at the invitation of the statistician E. A. Cornish and the geneticist J. H. Bennett. He died in Adelaide, following an operation for colon cancer, on July 29, 1962. During his life, Fisher engaged in vigorous controversy with Karl Pearson, Jerzy Neyman, and W. S. Gosset, to name but a few. After Fisher's death, his family donated his book copyrights and other intellectual and personal material to the University of Adelaide. This has resulted in the republication of his major books and scientific correspondence, and in a Web site from which can be downloaded most of his published papers.
