Martin’s multidimensionality is evidenced by his authorship of eight books including the textbooks Ultrahigh Frequency Engineering (Prentice-Hall) and Electronic Circuits (Prentice-Hall), and the fiction book Malice in Blunderland (McGraw-Hill), which satirizes the ineptitude of many non-profit institutions.
Tom Martin was a visionary. He appreciated very early the potential role of communications technology in education and the need to reach out to all elements of our society in order to create the innovative people that advance society. He was an academic leader without pretense and continually questioned the status quo. Today’s leaders of the engineering profession, corporate and academic, are indebted to him.
