Qxd 32 10/11/07 PART I ■ 2:37 PM LibraryPirate Page 32 Introduction An object that vibrates maximally when a force is applied, with the stimulating frequency of the applied force corresponding to the resonant frequency of the object, is said to be at resonance. Perhaps one of the most familiar examples of acoustic resonance is the shattering of a wineglass by the high-pitched voice of a soprano. When the frequency of the applied force (the singer’s voice) coincides with the natural frequency of the airfilled cavity formed by the wineglass, the maximal amplitude of vibration exceeds the maximum amplitude tolerable by the glass structure, resulting in its shattering.

James Jerger is widely recognized as the founder and driving force of the AAA. In 1987, at the ASHA convention, 5 well-known audiologists were recruited to discuss the future of audiology. During this session, Jerger noted that it was time for a new professional organization of, by, and for audiologists. Jerger’s comments were met with an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response. As a follow-up to the ASHA session, Jerger invited 32 audiology leaders to Houston, Texas, in early 1988. The purpose of the study group was to establish an independent, freestanding national organization for audiologists.
