      Comments from the New York Times guestbook:

      "May 15, 2006 Doug Bray was a giant in the field of I/O Psychology. His development of the Assessment Center and his Management Progress Study are a beacon that aspiring scientists-practioners will follow for years to come. Doug made an enrous contributions to both theory and practice, the essence of our field. I got to know Doug when I interviewed for a job at AT&T. Though I joined Corning Glass Works instead, I came away impressed by Doug's vision, creativty and his genial personality. How Doug and his group at AT&T employed social technology to make a contribution to theory and practice informed my own work in the years that followed. Michael Beer (Concord, MA )"

      "My condolences to Anne and his family. Doug was not only a leader in our field but a kind and generous person. Bob Morrison (San Diego, CA )"

      "Doug's Management Progress Study provided my first experience with organizational research. He was always extremely generous with the data and with his comments and suggestions on our papers. This experience was a key factor in my decision to go on for a Ph. D. and to conduct an academic career. Doug is a real giant in the field of I/O Psychology, and his passing is a huge loss. My deepest condolences to Ann and the other members of his family. Douglas T. (Tim) Hall (Boston, MA )"
