John Tukey was a Bell Labs employee for 40 years. In that time, he influenced very many researchers and contributed significantly to the growth and luster of the Bell Labs Statistics Research Department. His counsel was valued by senior management, and his involvement in many applied problems led to important advances, including his work on spectral analysis. I will survey this and other contributions.
