Abstract

Historians of electrical technology deal routinely with inventions, inventors, large-scale socio-technological systems, and corporate and institutional history. Yet one category of major contributor to the development of the discipline is rarely considered in detail: the engineering educator. This paper presents the contribution of one of the outstanding teachers of electronics of the twentieth century – in particular, a teacher of communications networks, circuit theory and filter design so important to modern telecommunications systems – Ernst (Ernie) Guillemin.
