A historical and anecdotal account is given of Robert T. Beyer's professional service. Highlights include his service to the Acoustical Society as Member of the Executive Council (1956-1959), Vice-President (1961-1962), Chair of the Physical Acoustics Technical Committee (1963-1964), President-Elect (1967-1968), President (1968-1969), and Treasurer (1974-1994). He was Chair of the Investments Committee (1990-1992) and served as an Associate Editor of the Journal for three distinct terms: 1952-1955 (References), 1965-1969 (Acoustical News from Abroad), and 1985-1991 (Book Reviews). He also served as interim Editor-in-Chief after the death of Robert B. Lindsay in 1985. Beyer was a voracious reader, an indefatigable translator, and a prolific writer. He wrote several textbooks, numerous book reviews, and frequent reports in JASA on the finances of the Society. His activities as a translator and editor of translated journals are legendary. Beyer's connections with the American Institute of Physics include Board of Governors (1969), Member of Executive Committee of Board (1974), Member of Translation Advisory Board (1955-1978) and its Chairman (1957-1977), and Board of Translations Editors (1978). The ASA awarded Beyer its Distinguished Service Citation in 1978, but he undoubtedly did enough more between 1978 and 2008 to justify being awarded several additional Service Citations.
