Who was Carl O. Nordling?
Carl O. Nordling was a Finnish born architect, urban planner and amateur historian. He graduated as an architect from the Helsinki University of Technology in 1939 and immigrated to Sweden after the end of the Continuation War in 1944. Nordling published an article on the Holocaust, How Many Jews Died in the German Concentration Camps?, in the Holocaust denial publication Journal of Historical Review.
As a statistician, he applied statistical methods to a number of scientific problems and published a large number of articles, mainly in his native Swedish. His most notable work is in scientific disciplines outside his professional expertise. Internationally he is best known for the small number of papers he published in English language peer reviewed scientific journals.
In 1953, in a paper published in the British Journal of Cancer, he first proposed the multi-mutation theory on cancer, today generally known as Knudson hypothesis after Alfred G. Knudson's work from 1971.
