Biographical Note

Nobel laureate Jack St. Clair Kilby is best known for his invention of the monolithic integrated circuit, also known as the microchip, in 1958 while employed at Texas Instruments (TI) in Dallas, Texas. This breakthrough laid the conceptual and technical foundation for the entire field of modern microelectronics which made such devices as personal computers, cell-phones, hand-held calculators and portable GPS systems possible in today’s information age.

Born November 8, 1923 in Jefferson City, Missouri, Kilby grew up in Great Bend, Kansas. At a young age, Kilby possessed an early interest in electronics and radios influenced by his electrical-engineer father, who was president of the Kansas Power Company. This interest led him to becoming a fully licensed radio ham in his teenage years and convinced him that he wanted to study Electrical Engineering.

He began his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, but four months after enrolling, in 1943, he joined the Army and served with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in Burma and China, spending the duration as a radio repairman.

After the war, Kilby completed his undergraduate studies and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1947. In 1950, he received his master’s from the University of Wisconsin. Continuing his studies at the University of Wisconsin, he received his master’s in 1950. He began his career in 1947 as an employee of Centralab Division of Globe Union, Inc., an electronic components manufacturer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, developing ceramic-base, silk-screened circuits for consumer electronic products. Kilby joined Dallas based Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) in June 1958.

During the summer of that year, working with improvised equipment, he conceived and built the first electronic circuit in which all the components were fabricated in a single piece of semiconductor material half the size of a paper clip. Before this integration, the single parts had to be connected using small wires, limiting large scale production. Kilby’s innovation launched a technological revolution.

Kilby continued to work at TI as an engineer and administrator, also co-inventing both the hand-held calculator and the thermal printer until taking a leave of absence to become an independent consultant and inventor in 1970. Kilby’s body of work includes more than 60 patents. Kilby also held the rank of Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University from 1978-1984.

Recognition of Kilby’s outstanding achievements have been made by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), including award of Fellow grade in 1966, the David Sarnoff Medal in 1966, co-recipient of the IEEE Cledo Brunetti award in 1978, The IEEE Centennial Medal in 1984 and the IEEE Medal of Honor in 1986. He was co-recipient of the Franklin Institute’s Stuart Ballentine Medal in 1966. In 1982 and 1989, he received the Holley Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME.) He was a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and received the Academy’s Vladimir K. Zworykin Award in 1975, and was co-recipient of the NAE’s Charles Stark Draper Prize in 1989. He was awarded the nation’s most prestigious honors in science and engineering: the National Medal of Science in 1969 and the National Medal of Technology in 1990. In 1982, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Kilby was awarded the prodigious Kyoto Prize by the Inamori Foundation in 1993, the Washington Award, administered by the Western Society of Engineers in 1999 and in 2000, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. Kilby holds nine honorary doctorate degrees from Universities including Southern Methodist University.

Kilby’s interests were not limited to the field of engineering. He was also an accomplished and prolific photographer; working with a medium format Hasselblad 500C camera to produce images of varying subject matter. He printed his photographs in his personal darkroom. He was recognized for various photography awards. He also enjoyed woodworking and making furniture.

Kilby died June 20, 2005 at the age of 81, in Dallas, Texas. He was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara Annegers Kilby, whom he married in 1948 and survived by his two daughters, Ann and Janet Kilby and five grandchildren.
