Joe Baugher


Joseph F. Baugher (born 1941) is a retired physicist, software engineer, and author, who has also written articles on aviation.[1]

Baugher graduated from Gettysburg College in 1963 and studied physics under Philip J. Bray at Brown University, receiving a Ph.D. in 1968.

After fellowships at the University of Sheffield and the University of Chicago, Baugher became a professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1971. In 1979, he went to work at the Teletype Corporation doing research and development related to custom semiconductor chip manufacture. After several years, Teletype's activities shut down (1985–1986), as its parent company AT&T Corporation divested various of its operations.

Baugher then took a position doing computer programming for the Naperville division of Bell Laboratories, where he worked on telephone switches for several years before retiring in 2001. As of 2003, he teaches part-time at the Illinois Institute of Art, and continues to write.

Baugher's American Military Aircraft website provides detail from the initial design phases to the final fate of various aircraft, including all of the US fighter and bomber models and some from other countries.
