William Morgan (June 1750 4 May 1833) was a Welsh physician, physicist and statistician, who is considered the father of modern actuarial science.He was born in Bridgend, Glamorganshire, and first came to London for medical training at Guy's Hospital. He was appointed Assistant Actuary of The Equitable Life Assurance Society in 1774 and elected Actuary the next year, after the death of John Pocock. By the time he retired in 1830, 56 years later at the age of 80, he laid the foundations of the actuarial profession -in fact the term actuarial became attached to the profession because of his title.
