An Introduction to the Theory of Life Contingencies

An Introduction to the Theory of Life Contingencies, M.A. Mackenzie, N.E. Sheppard, 1931

This is a textbook intended for a one year actuarial class at the University of Toronto. The authors explicitly state that they
intended to stick to mathematical principles and stay away from icky things like ‘office practice’. While it seems like just another older textbook, I contacted the
copyright owner to get permission to duplicate the book and they have no record of the book, no copies of the book, no information at all. It’s possible this is the last
remaining copy of this book.
