|Memories of VideoDisc - Who's Who in VideoDisc|
Russell R. Barton studied at Princeton University under an RCA Merit Scholarship, receiving a B.S.E.E. with honors in 1973. While an undergraduate, he studied the feasibility of electric cars powered by conventional lead-acid batteries, and conducted electric vehicle tests for ESB. He received Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Operations Research from Cornell University in 1975 and 1978, respectively. From 1975 to 1978 he worked as a consultant on operations research problems for the Departments of Justice, Transportation, Labor, and the Army. His doctoral thesis was a study of statistical failure rate techniques applied to the analysis of exoffender behavior. In 1978, he joined RCA Laboratories where he has worked on a variety of projects, including VideoDisc testing, satellite reliability analysis, organizational effectiveness, and decomposition solutions for large network problems. Dr. Barton is a member of Eta Kappa Nu, Sigma Xi, the Operations Research Society of America, and the American Statistical Association.
