Davis there were combined an imaginative range as wide as the problem faced, a scholarly drive that acquainted him with all relevant sources, a master of the tools of empirical research, unlimited energy, capacity to write clearly and compactly, an honesty that never flagged and a character that insured that "psychology" never got between him and his job." --Joseph Willits, The American Statistician, Volume 30, Issue 4: 199.
