This morning I was saddened to hear that John Horn, the "H" in CHC theory, passed away this past Friday. I learned this from Tim Keith and then emailed and had it confirmed by Jack McArdle, who worked with John for decades. As information becomes available I'll pass it along.
This is a great loss to the field of theoretical intelligence and applied intelligence testing. He will be missed. I, in particular, will miss his lively arguements against the "g" (general intelligence) position. He had a profound impact on my professional life.
All NASP members who were fortunate enough to meet with John at last years NASP should cheerish that get-together (link, link).
