Tech Alum To Speak About Research Parks
A South Dakota Tech graduate instrumental in helping create the largest research and development park in Washington will speak in Rapid City this week about undertaking such an endeavor here.
George Garlick will speak at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, at the Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn. The event is not open to the public, but Tech invites the media to attend.
Born and raised in western Nebraska, Garlick graduated from Tech in 1958 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. He subsequently received a master’s degree from USC and a doctorate from Iowa State University. He was instrumental as a founder in the formation of the Tri City Science and Technology Park Association. Patterned after the Stanford Research Park in Palo Alto, Calif., the park has become the largest in the state of Washington. The park provides a place for high technology businesses to launch their new companies based on patented technology developed at the Hanford Project. The park has become a model for other business areas surrounding U.S. national laboratories.
