In Memoriam

Grant Dove (EE ‘51) died in November after a long illness. He served on the ECE Advisory Board from 1992-1994, served on the College of Engineering Committee of 100, and was in the first group named to the College of Engineering Academy of Engineering Excellence.

Dove spent the bulk of his professional career with Texas Instruments. He is credited with convincing the military to buy the Strike missile, one of TI’s best selling weapons of the 1960s. Later, his projects included the development of computers for use in the oil and gas industry and the development of the HARM missile. After retiring from TI as an executive vice president, Dove was chairman and CEO of Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corp. — a private research cooperative launched in 1983. Most recently, Dove served as a managing partner at Technology Strategies & Alliances of Dallas, TX.
