Today at Berkeley Lab

In Memoriam: Computing Scientist David Stevens

David Stevens (right), whose lab career spanned 40 years, has died. He began his career as a mathematical programmer in Bldg. 46 and was serving as the lab’s liaison to DOE, reviewing directives and formulating responses, when he retired in December 1997. Hired in 1960, Stevens continued working at the lab as a guest scientist until 2000. Along the way, he had a stint as a computing consultant at CERN, worked with many of the lab’s supercomputers in the 1960s and ‘70s, and headed the computer security program. More>
