Founded by Harvey Fletcher

The Brigham Young University Acoustics Research Group, which was organized by this year’s Homecoming Honored Founder Harvey Fletcher, will host a 50th anniversary celebration in his honor Monday, Oct. 11, at 6 p.m. in C215 Eyring Science Center.

Housed within the Department of Physics and Astronomy, the organization — which is BYU’s oldest research group  — will be putting on an acoustics demo show featuring “audible illusions.” After the show, the group will offer tours of the anechoic and reverberation chambers in the ESC.
