Gene Andrews, 1972

Roland Eugene Andrews (b. 2 July 1931 – d. 22 December 2020) worked at Tektronix in Beaverton, Oregon from 1962 to 1998.

From Tekscope Vol.4 No.2, March 1972, p.5:

During his ten years at Tek, Gene has made many fine contributions to the product line. He began by working on the 10A2 amplifier, and was then responsible for the vertical amplifier design of the 453 Portable. He later was project engineer on the 647A/10A2A to bring this up to a 100-MHz instrument. When the 7000-Series was conceived he worked out the horizontal amplifier for the 7704 and designed the high-efficiency power supply for the unit; the first used in a TEKTRONIX laboratory oscilloscope.

Gene received his BSEE from Oregon State in 1954 and completed his M.S. at Stanford in 1956.
