Reintroducing Joseph Thomas Gier
Meet EE Prof. Joseph Gier (1910-1961), the first tenured black professor in the U. C. system and the first tenured black faculty member in a STEM field—and the second in any field—at a top-ranked, predominantly white university in the country. He was also a world expert in the field of thermal and luminous radiation and was considered by many at the time to be the “best laboratory instructor ever to teach in electrical engineering at Berkeley.”
