Green, Cecil Howard
▪ 2004

      British-born American seismographic engineer and philanthropist (b. Aug. 6, 1900, Manchester, Eng.—d. April 12, 2003, La Jolla, Calif.), was a cofounder of Texas Instruments Inc., the semiconductor firm that developed the first pocket-size transistor radio (1954) and the integrated circuit board (1958) that was instrumental in ushering in a wave of electrically controlled machines. After earning a masters degree (1924) in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Green joined Geophysical Sciences Inc. in 1932. Later he and three partners bought the company, which became Texas Instruments in 1951. Green was given an honorary knighthood in 1991. He donated more than $200 million to educational and medical institutions around the globe.
