Charles M. Wolfe

Inducted: 05/03/1991

Born in Morgantown, West Virginia in 1935, Charles M. Wolfe received the BSEE and MSEE degrees from WVU in 1961 and 1962, respectively. He received the PhD in 1965 from the University of Illinois. In 1978 he received an Electronics Division Award from the Electrochemical Society and was elected a Fellow in the IEEE “for contributions to the development of high-purity gallium-arsenide for microwave and optical device applications.”

In 1990, Dr. Wolfe and Dr. Gregory E. Stillman were joint recipients of the prestigious Jack A. Morton Award. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineers and internationally recognized as one of the leading authorities in electron device research.

Dr. Wolfe was appointed to the Samuel C. Sachs Chair of Electrical Engineering at Washington University in 1982.

Dr. Wolfe is also a distinguished alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, "in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the synthesis and characterization of ultra-pure III-V semiconductors."

Donald L. Snyder, Ph.D., Samuel C. Sachs Professor of Electrical Engineering, Washington University

Working with Academy Fellows Jerome R. Cox, Sc.D., and the late Michael Ter-Pogossian, Ph.D., Dr. Snyder participated in research to develop positron-emission-tomography systems. He established and directed the Electronic Systems and Signals Research Laboratory, which researched fundamental aspects of imaging applied to biomedical, astronomical, and remote-sensing problems. He is renowned for his contributions to estimation theory and its applications to communications and medicine. His current research, along with faculty and students from the Washington University Schools of Engineering and Medicine, is aimed at improving the capabilities of x-ray imaging technology to improve the treatment of patients having advanced cervical cancer.
