Miller, Plummer To Be Inducted Into Clark School Innovation Hall of Fame

Engineering alumni Edward A. Miller, ’50, and James W. Plummer, ’53, will be inducted into the Clark School’s Innovation Hall of Fame on September 19, when the exhibit moves to its new home in the Kim Engineering Building.

The inductees were chosen for their work on the top-secret Corona Project, which pioneered satellite surveillance during the Cold War. They also received the Charles Stark Draper Prize, also known as “engineering’s Nobel,” from the National Academy of Engineering earlier this year.

Mr. Miller received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering here, and Mr. Plummer received a master's degree in electrical engineering here. Mr. Miller went on to become Assistant Secretary of the Army for Research and Development, and Mr. Plummer to become Under Secretary for the Air Force. Both led highly successful corporate careers as well.

Every year the Innovation Hall of Fame committee, made up of Clark School alumni and faculty, selects an engineer or engineers to honor for their technological accomplishments and to recognize innovation at the concept, design or working level of engineering. The Innovation Hall of Fame was conceived and funded by alumnus Stanford Berman, ’50, in 1985.

The September 19 induction ceremony at the site of the new Innovation Hall of Fame will coincide with the dedication of the new Kim Engineering Building and the Charles and Helen White Symposium.
