Edward Gage Conture, Professor Emeritus Recently retired from Vanderbilt University, Professor Emeritus Edward Gage Conture provides a retrospective of his illustrious career in the field of stuttering. Threaded with personal history, his legacy of mentees, and an abundance of research and clinical contributions, Dr. Conture provides a retrospective of the personal and professional influences on his career and scientific discoveries that will continue to guide the field for decades to come.

Ehud Yairi, Professor Emeritus In this candid interview, Dr. Ehud Yairi summarizes just a few of his major contributions to our understanding of the onset, development, and persistence of stuttering. His career retrospective is interwoven with his personal experiences of stuttering as a child and young adult in Israel and how they influenced his decision to enroll at the University of Iowa for graduate studies, where he also met his wife Janie. Professor Yairi recalls the avenues of inquiry and outcomes of over 50 years of pioneering research in stuttering, discusses some related implications, and offers a bit of advice for current and future clinicians and researchers.
