Presents an obituary of Ronald E. Fox (1936–2018). Fox was a visionary, trailblazer, and leader in the practice of psychology for over 50 years, renowned for his ability to bring psychologists together to meet society's most pressing needs. Fox envisioned a broad social role for professional psychology, moving beyond psychotherapy for people with psychological problems to encompass general health, prevention, and well-being. He also had a long history of involvement in the APA. He was always a step or two ahead of us—creating the Practice Directorate, supporting the APA's reorganization that created the directorate structure, urging all of us to contribute to political action. He was recognized for his contributions with many awards, including the Distinguished Career Contributions to Practice of Psychology Gold Medal Award from the American Psychological Foundation (1994) and the Raymond D. Fowler Award for Outstanding Contributions to APA (2009). (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
