Browsing through the obits this morning, I saw a rather lengthy one for a Noreen Toole. Skimming it, the phrase "National Research Council" jumped out. Looking a little closer, I saw she was a native New Brunswicker, and was married to Floyd (also a son of New Brunswick). Ah, THAT Floyd Toole. He's the guy that the engineering building at UNB Fredericton is named after, the guy that wrote countless (and countlessly referenced) papers in Journal of the Audio Engineering Society (some of which I have Xeroxed and yellowing in my many binders) and who brought blind A/B speaker-testing to prominence. After a long career at the NRC, he became the VP-Engineering at Harman Industries, the company whose brands include: AKG, Crown, Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, Lexicon, dbx, DigiTech, Mark Levinson, Soundcraft, and Studer. Chances are pretty good that you use gear he oversaw development of, either as a musician (e.g., Whammy pedal), as a studio or sound reinforcement person (Soundcraft, Studer, Crown, Lexicon), or simply in your home stereo system. They had been married for 58 years.
