Biographical Note: Laurence Fuller Cleveland was born May 6, 1905.

Cleveland taught electrical engineering at Northeastern from 1929 - 1973. He began as a drawing instructor, and, after a 44 year career, retired as a tenured professor from the Department of Electrical Engineering. In addition to his teaching duties, Cleveland acted as Chapel Choir Director and organist at the university's Bacon Chapel.
