About the Authors
  • The Problem of Noise by F. C. Bartlett was published as part of the Cambridge Miscellany series in 1934. The volume contains two Heath Clark Lectures delivered by the author at the invitation of the National Institute of Industrial Psychology, printed together with a preface by C. S. Myers. The purpose of the lectures was to provide a concise account of some facts - rather than opinions - about unwanted sounds and their effects.
