Topic: Tribute to Roy Allison, AES convention report

The Sunday BAS meeting will devote a portion of its time to remembering our old friend the acoustics researcher and loudspeaker designer Roy Allison, who died in NH last week, at age 88. Allison's career arc began as a naval electronics instructor as a wartime teenager to engineering journalism through engineering VP for AR to establishing his own speaker companies. He wrote lay audio guides and professional research articles on listening room acoustics that are anthologized references. He was a regular participant in BAS activities, from introducing the Allison One in the mid-1970s to various factory visits and panel discussions in the decades thereafter, culminating in a sendoff dinner when he moved to Florida. His intellect, prose precision, dry wit, research interests, engineering creativity and invention, and inordinate gentlemanliness in a mean industry served, and serve, as examples to all of us.
