DR. TONY FREDERICK WALLACE EMBLETON, FRSC On Friday, November 13, 2020 at his daughter's home in Woodbridge, surrounded by family, with his daughter and granddaughter holding his hands, after a month of complications in a 7-year battle with various cancers. Born in Hornchurch, Essex, England, October 1, 1929, he earned a PhD in physics in 1952 from Imperial College London.

A former President of the Acoustical Society of America, its Standards Director, and associate editor of its journal, he was recipient of the Society's Bruce Lindsay Award, Silver Medal in Noise, and Gold Medal. He was active in the Institute of Noise Control Engineering and International INCE. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and served as its Treasurer, as well as a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Engineering. He retired to Nobleton in the early 1990s to be near family.
