Man of the Year 2023: Henry E. Halladay
|Henry E. Halladay, Ph.D., P.E.
|Dr. Henry Halladay was born in Minneapolis, MN in 1939, managed a paper route as a teenager, joined Junior Achievement in High School and achieved Salutatorian upon graduation. His interest in science led him to take a complementary scholarship at the University of Chicago where he pursued a career in Physics. During a summer employment at a computer disk manufacturer as a technician, he decided an Electrical Engineering career appeared as a better career choice and so after 3 years at Chicago he transferred to the University of Minnesota where they had a well-recognized Engineering School. He graduated with a BSEE with Honors in 1961, followed by a MSEE in 1963 and PhD in 1967. He was selected to join Eta Kappa Nu and Tau Beta PI honorary societies in 1962. He married his high school sweetheart, Diana, in 1960 and moved his Family to Washington State in 1967 to work for the Boeing Company. His initial work at Boeing involved research of microwave integrated circuits for phased array applications. He was selected to the Order of the Engineer in 1986 and became a registered Professional Engineer in Washington in 1972.
