Bibliographic information

Biographical/Historical note CMH first met Professor Cremer, one of the most important acousticians of this century in Germany, when he lectured at MIT. He was pleased to find violin acoustics being studied in the US and subsequently invited her to lecture at the Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin, of which he was Director. She was finally able to accept this invitation in 1971 in conjunction with her trip to the ICA Meeting in Budapest. Over the years there developed a close friendship and an active correspondence sharing technical information ensued. CMH was instrumental in his receiving the ASA Gold Medal. The high regard in which he was held will be evident from the biographical detail found in the Miscellaneous section (102) of this file, and the significance of his contribution to acoustics may be assessed from the number of awards he received and from the extent of the obituary material to be found there. His published output is vast - over 100 papers and several books. A few of the many are contained in sections 103 & 104. See the Technical Summary.
