Election to the grade of IEEE Fellow is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an individual by the Institute, and recognition of a member’s technical, educational, and leadership achievements is one of its major goals. Only a select few IEEE members earn this prestigious honor.
The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest.
Congratulations to all the 58 ComSoc IEEE Fellows in 2011!
Paul Baran, an IEEE Communications Society Fellow, long time member of ComSoc, one of the founding fathers of the Internet, has passed at the age of 84.
Among many career awards, in 1987, Mr. Baran received IEEE Communications Society’s Edwin Howard Armstrong Achievement Award. In 1990, he received IEEE Alexander Graham Bell Medal "For pioneering in Packet Switching."
Mr. Baran reportedly died Saturday 26 March 2011 at his home in Palo Alto, California, from complications caused by lung cancer. He was married to Evelyn Baran who died in 2007. He is survived by his son David, three grandchildren; and his companion of recent years, Ruth Rothman.
Paul will be deeply missed.
