IEEE Past Presidents Oral Histories

In 2009, as part of the celebration of the 125th Anniversary of IEEE, the IEEE History Center undertook a project to record oral histories with as many living past presidents as possible.  These oral histories focus on the interviewees' experiences as IEEE leaders, rather than on their professional careers. To date, the following oral histories from the project have been completed and posted on the GHN. Additional interviews are being processed, and will be posted when completed.


Dates refer to the year the individual served as IEEE President:

Jerome Suran (1979)

Charles "Bud" Eldon (1985)

Henry L. Bachman (1987)

Ken Laker (1989)

Bruce Eisenstein (1990)

Merrill Buckley (1992)

Wally Read (1996)

Joel Snyder (2001)


In addition to their oral histories, eight past presidents participated in two video-taped  panel discussions at the 2009 IEEE Conference on the History of Technical Societies.


The IEEE History Center earlier conducted oral histories with the following IEEE past presidents on their IEEE activities:


Ernst Weber (1963)

James Mulligan (1971)

John Guarrera (1974)

Robert Saunders (1977)

Ivan Getting (1978)
