Raymond J. Kirk (B.S., Physics, 1959; M.S., Electrical Engineering, 1961)


I spent 28 years with Honeywell Systems and Research
Center in Minneapolis working on design and development of avionic
systems, space systems, and weapon systems.

I have been married for 51 years to my wife Lois. We have two
children. I had fun classes and tough tests at the University of Minnesota. I worked with Dr. Winckler and Dr. Kellogg in building experiments for space launches. My favorite professors were John Winckler, Ed Ney, Al Nier, Paul Kellogg, Morris Blair and J. Valasek.
