## Biography

Jack Keil Wolf was born in Newark, New Jersey before almost anyone reading this page existed. His strange middle name was his mother's family name. After surviving high school in Newark (an experience which put him in good staid for later life) he did his undergraduate work at the University of Pennsylvania and received his graduate degrees from Princeton University. His first full time job was as a Lieutenant in the US Air Force where he learned how to read andwrite proposals. His entree into university teaching was as a part time Instructor at Syracuse University which offered graduate courses at the air base where he was stationed.

Jack has held full time faculty positions since leaving the Air Force, first at NYU, then at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, then at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and finally at UCSD. At UCSD he holds a chair named for Stephen O. Rice who after his retirement from Bell Laboratories came to UCSD and continued to do research. Jack was the first faculty to be hired in the Center for Memory and Recording Research. Jack was also a part time employee of Qualcomm, Inc, a San Diego company that specializes in wireless communications.

At one point of his life Jack attempted to masquerade as a university administrator (as Chair of the ECE department at U MASS) but was soon discovered and unmasked.

Jack's research interests were in Information Theory, Coding Theory, Data Communications and Signal Processing for Recording.

### Formal Biography

Dr. Jack Wolf received the B.S.E.E. degree from the University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, in 1956, and the M.S.E., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, in 1957, 1958, and 1960, respectively. He was the Stephen O. Rice Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a member of the Center for Memory and Recording Research at the University of California-San Diego, La Jolla. He was a member of the Electrical Engineering Department at New York University from 1963 to 1965, and the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn from 1965 to 1973. He was Chairman of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, from 1973 to 1975, and he was Professor there from 1973 to 1984. Since 1984, he has been a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a member of the Center for Memory and Recording Research at the University of California-San Diego. He also held a part-time appointment at Qualcomm, Inc., San Diego. From 1971 to 1972, he was an NSF Senior Postdoctoral Fellow, and from 1979 to 1980, he held a Guggenheim Fellowship. His research interest was in signal processing for storage systems.

Dr. Wolf was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1993. He was the recipient of the 1990 E. H. Armstrong Achievement Award of the IEEE Communications Society and was co-recipient of the 1975 IEEE Information Theory Group Paper Award for the paper "Noiseless coding for correlated information sources" (co-authored with D. Slepian). He served on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Group from 1970 to 1976 and from 1980 to 1986. Dr. Wolf was President of the IEEE Information Theory Group in 1974. He was International Chairman of Committee C of URSI from 1980 to 1983. He was the recipient of the 1998 IEEE Koji Kobayashi Computers and Communications Award, "for fundamental contributions to multi-user communications and applications of coding theory to magnetic data storage devices." In May 2000, he received a UCSD Distinguished Teaching Award. In 2004 Professor Wolf received the IEEE Richard W. Hamming Medal for "fundamental contributions to the theory and practice of information transmission and storage". In 2005 he was elected by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences as a Fellow, and in 2010 was elected as a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
