Kawora Carl Nomura (M.S., Physics 1949; B.S., Physics 1948; Ph.D., Electrical Engineering 1953)


I have four children and eight grandchildren.

I am retired from Honeywell, as officer and corporate Sr. V.P. I received Honeywell’s outstanding Achievement Award in 1988. I remember fondly the friendliness of the staff at the School of Physics and Astronomy. My favorite professor was Edward Hill because he made difficult subjects appear simple. I took every course he taught. If Hill had taught Sanskrit, I’d have taken that too.
