In Memoriam: Tom Nawata
The IEEE SAS recognizes the passing of Mr. Tom Nawata in Feb 2021. Tom was one of the original petitioners, to the IRE in 1956, to set up the Southern Alberta Section, of what was then known as the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). The IRE later became the IEEE. When the IEEE Southern Alberta Section had our 50th anniversary celebration in 2006, we invited both Tom and another original petitioner named, Charlie Hansen, to the celebration and the AGM that year.
Please see the “In Memoriam” web page for Charlie Hanson also found on the on this IEEE SAS web site.
