In memory – Dr. Richard Price

Posted: November 3, 2021

It is with sadness that we note the passing of G. Richard “Dick” Price on 5-22-21. Dick was raised in Delaware and received a Ph.D. in Physiological Psychology from Princeton University. He worked 40 years as a research psychologist at the Behavioral Research and Engineering Directorate for the U.S. Army. Dick’s primary research focus was impulse noise. One of his best-known contributions was work on development of the Auditory Hazard Assessment Algorithm for Humans (AHAAH), a model for predicting risks of exposure to impulse noise. He was a frequent contributor to NHCA conferences and is the 2007 recipient of NHCA’s Outstanding Hearing Conservationist Award.
