False 4-kHz Air-Bone Gaps: A Failure of Standards

During the Eisenhower administration, more than half a century ago, the Third International Congress on Acoustics convened in Stuttgart, Germany. It was a wide-ranging conference covering all areas of psychological, physiological, and physical acoustics. The list of authors from the proceedings is a three-column, three-page Who’s Who that includes many of the most eminent auditory scientists of the day. Some of the familiar names on the roster include Georg von Békésy, Nelson Kiang, S.S. Stevens, Juergen Tonndorf, and Eberhard Zwicker.
