27 IEEE Region 1 History Report IEEE History Committee has been advising the IEEE Board of Directors on matters of legacy & heritage of IEEE and its members & their related professions & technologies since IEEEs inception. In 1980 IEEE established the IEEE History Center to be the staff arm of the History Committee. IEEEs historical activities are carried out by the staff of the History Center, under the guidance of the History Committee. 27

28 IEEE History Center Mission of History Center is to preserve, research and promote the history of information and electrical technologies. Center maintains resources for the engineer, historian of technology and anyone interested in the development of electrical & computer engineering & their role in modern society. The History Center is part of IEEE Corporate Activities & is co-sponsored by Rutgers Univ., History Dept. School of Arts & Sciences. Most of the Centers resources are available online at the IEEE Global History Network. 28

29 IEEE Global History Network The Global History Network is a new website of the IEEE History Center dedicated to the histories of IEEE, its members and their professions & technologies. –http://www.ieeeghn.org GHN is wiki-based but restricted to IEEE members, technical authorities and professional historians. GHN empowers IEEE members to collaborate in documenting the histories of their organizational units. 29

30 IEEE Region 1 History Richard Ackley, a previous Region 1 Historian prepared an historic overview of Region 1 and our history of electro technology including a brief history of each Section in Region 1. This is a living document and I encourage each Section Chair or Section Historian to provide current and past Section history to be included in our Region 1 History Archives.
