This festschrift in honor of Robert G. Crowder presents thought provoking new research for scientists specializing in the field of memory and cognition, while also examining Crowder's life, work, and lasting legacy. Crowder's far-reaching influence on the field of memory and cognition includes such pioneering concepts as the "irregular list technique", a ground breaking method for studying the distinctiveness of time as a critical dimension to memory.

In addition to his intellectual contributions, Crowder conveys to his students a candid, inherent interest in the discipline of psychology as a whole. His enjoyment of and investment in various schools of psychological thought, combined with methodological rigor and his remarkable willingness to attempt to disprove his own theories, has resulted in an environment of inclusion that continues to inspire subsequent generations of psychologists.
