First-Hand:50 Year Member First Hand Histories
IEEE was formed on 1 January 1963 through the merger of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE). So 2012 is our 50th year, and the IEEE History Center would like to recognize all those who have been loyal members since the beginning.
The 50 Year Member First Hand Histories is a special collection of First Hand Histories submitted by these members.
If you are a 50 year member and would like to contribute a First Hand History, please see the First Hand History creation instructions.
Once your First Hand History is completed, we will mark your contribution with a graphic replica of the First 50 Year Member pin shown above.
