The problem of the recovery of interblock information is considered in the estimation of any treatment contrast in balanced incomplete block designs. From a decision-theoretic point of view, this problem can be regarded as finding minimax estimators relative to a quadratic loss. The paper gives a broad family of minimax estimators, out of which admissible minimax estimators within the class of location equivariant estimators are developed.
