National Science Foundation (NSF) Oral History Project

In the early 1990s, The IEEE History Center conducted a series of oral history Interviews to document the history of National Science Foundation (NSF) funding for computing and computer science research. The oral histories listed below were done as part of this project, and thus document not only the individual's careers, but the influence of funding on those careers. In addition to the interviews done for this project, additional oral histories on the Global History Network include discussion of NSF funding.

  • Woodrow Wilson Bledsoe - Worked on automated theorem proving and helped found the artificial intelligence firm Panoramic Research Inc.
  • Arthur Burks - Worked on the design of ENIAC and later chaired and helped found the Department of Computer and Communication Sciences at University of Michigan.
  • Wayne Cowell - Mathematician who worked on software packages for solving specific classes of equations.
  • Martin Davis - Known for his work on Hilbert's Tenth Problem and for his model of Post-Turing machines.
  • Robert M. Gray (1991) - Electrical Engineer who made significant contributions in speech processing, developed one of the first examples of a universal code and popularized the algorithm for vector quantifier design.
  • David Gries - Has worked to advance the teaching of CS and is known for his research in compiling and in programming methodology.
