S. S. Stevens, professor of Psychophysics in Harvard University was born in Ogden, Utah on 4 November 1906, and died in Vail, Colorado on 18 January 1973.

Indeed, Stevens’ Law and Fechner’s Law represent the most widely known quantifications of stimulus-response relations in all of experimental psychology.
