Ryder, one of Hollywood's most honored sound directors who was awarded five Academy Awards and nominated for 12 more, has died in a Monterey convalescent hospital…A 1924 physics and mathematics graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, which he attended after Army service in World War I…In 1948, he made what probably was his most important contribution to sound in films, the use of magnetic tape. Before that, studios were forced to rely on heavy optical recorders (Ryder hauled his around in an 11-ton truck). Ryder's system, which today involves recorders weighing ounces rather than tons, was first used in the film "Geronimo" and later on Rudy Vallee's television programs…. The offshoot of those experiments was an industrywide conversion to magnetic tape and Ryder's founding of his own firm in 1948, although he stayed with Paramount until 1957.""Loren L. Ryder; Winner of 5 Oscars for Movie Sound". Los Angeles Times. 1985-05-30. 
  65. "Loren L. Ryder, a pioneer of sound technology for motion pictures and the winner of six Academy Awards, died Tuesday at Carmel (Calif.) Convalescent Hospital. In 1945, Mr. Ryder's design, construction and use of the first dial-controlled step-by-step sound channel lineup and test circuit earned him his third Oscar. Four years later, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented Mr. Ryder with a special award for the development and application of the supersonic playback and public-address system…The first studiowide application of magnetic sound recording for motion-picture production earned Mr. Ryder and Paramount Studios an Oscar in 1950. Mr. Ryder's final award came in 1955 for a projection film index to establish proper framing for various aspect ratios."Associated Press (1985-05-31). "Loren L.
