The James Eaton Memorial Scholarship is for an EECS graduate or undergraduate student who has demonstrated a keen sense of creativity and inventiveness. He was graduated magna cum laude in 1958 and went on to study control and systems theory in graduate school under Lotfi Zadeh, the father of fuzzy logic. He earned his masters and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering in 1960 and 1962, respectively. After a short time as an Assistant Professor at Cal, Eaton went to work for IBM in various locations, eventually serving as Director of Applied Research in Yorktown Heights, NY. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in the mid-1970s, Eaton returned to the San Jose lab in 1983, remnaining active in reasearch, and retired in 1993. In 1994 he was named a Distinguished Alumnus of Berkeley's EECS Department.
