Who was the "student" that created the Student's t-distribution?

Great trivia question for all you statistic lovers out there! Many people are familiar with the name "Student" but not with the name Gosset.

Gosset actually worked in the Guinness brewery in Dublin while he did important work on statistics. For more info click on this link.
