Biographical Abstract:Harold R. Raemer, a professor of electrical engineering, was born on April 26, 1924. He received a B.S. in physics, an M.S. in mathematics, and, in 1959, a PhD in physics from Northwestern University. From 1952 to 1963, Raemer worked in industrial laboratories as a research engineer. In 1963, he came to Northeastern University as an associate professor of electrical engineering, and was appointed professor in 1966. Raemer was chair of the Electrical Engineering Department from 1966-1977, and he served as acting chair from 1982-1984.
