    On May 23, 2016 several of Richard R. (Dick) Fay's friends, colleagues, and former students presented papers at a Special Session (1pAB, Comparative Hearing-Honoring Dick Fay) of the 171st ASA meeting in Salt Lake City celebrating Dick's many achievements. The session was sponsored by the Animal Bioacoustics and Psychological and Physiological Acoustics Technical Committees and was attended by more than 75 people. The session was also streamed over the internet to about 50 people from around the world, including Dick Fay and his wife, Cathy at their home in Falmouth, MA. Art Popper and Bill Yost co-organized and co-chaired the session. The special session focused, which featured papers that spanned Dick's very substantial career contributions to auditory neuroscience. All of Dick's work has been marked by brilliant conception and elegant execution of complex experiments. His contributions include more than 200 publications and many books with a focus on comparative aspects of hearing that span fishes to mammals. Indeed, Dick has been one of the true pioneers in comparative hearing.
