Sound org fetes Dolby

Sound reproduction legend Ray Dolby, founder and chairman of Dolby Laboratories, will be the 44th recipient of the American Electronic Assn.’s Medal of Achievement when the dingus is given out at the association’s annual meeting dinner in San Jose on Sept. 9.

Previous winners of the AEA’s medal include William Hewlett and David Packard of Hewlett-Packard Corp., Thomas Watson of IBM and Bob Galvin of Motorola. It is bestowed on those individuals who make lifelong contributions to the electronics industry.

Dolby, the holder of more than 50 patents and the man who took hiss out of the tape loop, certainly qualifies. This year alone, Dolby was made an honorary Doctor of Science by Cambridge University, was given the IEEE’s Masaru Ibaka Consumer Electronics Award and received the U.S. National Medal of Technology.
