Gary S. Goldman
holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Pacific Western University
in Los Angeles and graduated with honors in 1977 from California
State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with a double major: B.S. Engineering
(Electronic emphasis) and B.S. Computer Science. He was elected
member of the Phi-Kappa-Phi honor society and in 1976 received
the Outstanding University Engineering Student Award, presented
by the Orange County Engineering Education Council (OCEC). At
graduation he received a special Merit Award in recognition of
scholarly commitment and outstanding Academic Achievement in Computer
Science, presented by CSUF.
Gary S. Goldman
also received a special Merit Award in recognition of an attitude
of enthusiasm and for outstanding service to the Division of Engineering
at CSUF presented by Dr. Eugene Hunt, Chairman. At CSUF, Goldman
was employed as a computer consultant assisting faculty/staff
and students with computer applications. He later served as a
part-time assistant professor for the Engineering and Quantitative
Methods departments instructing both graduate and undergraduate
courses in statistics, programming, digital simulation, and digital
logic design and switching theory.
as vice-president of Systems Development of Cascade Graphics Development,
he developed the first microcomputer-based computer-aided drafting
(CAD) system (prior to the well known AutoCad product). Dr. Gilbert
McCann, then professor emeritus of CalTech, served on the board
of directors of this company. Goldman engaged in computer consulting
tours to South Africa, Germany, Holland, England and Canada.
Goldman holds a U.S. patent (#4223255, granted September, 1980)
for a micro-programmed, high-efficiency motor-in-a-wheel called
Power Wheel, for use in electric vehicular applications.
This invention was featured on the front cover of the Fall, 1980
issue of Popular Science and Mechanics.
the Goldman/Blake remediation program
with specific visual process deficits used in a pilot study at
the Hope-Haven Hospital in Florida. He served on a development
team that produced the first Interactive Graphics Terminal, IGT-100,
at CalComp (California Computer Products, Anaheim, CA) writing
software and systems level routines that permitted the editing
of drawings prior to their being electronically plotted. He has
served as a computer consultant responsible for the automation
of a wide variety of businesses, improved production, and conversion
of data bases.
He has authored
and presented numerous manuscripts contributing to engineering
and computer science disciplines and enjoys writing heuristic
programs (developing algorithms based on ones knowledge and intuition
concerning a problem). Dr. Goldman served for 8 years, from 1995
until his resignation in 2002, as Research Analyst for the Varicella
Active Surveillance Project in Antelope Valley in cooperation
with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
