William Bradford Shockley (February 13, 1910 – August 12, 1989) was a British-born American physicist and inventor. Along with John Bardeen and Walter Houser Brattain, Shockley co-invented the transistor , for which all three were awarded the 1956 Nobel Prize in physics. Shockley's attempts to commercialize a new transistor design in the 1950s and '60s led to San Francisco's "Silicon Valley" becoming a hotbed of computer innovation. In his later life, Shockley was a professor at Stanford, and he also became a staunch advocate of eugenics. MEEN 222 – 501 Fall 2009 Quiz #11 Student: SOLUTION Print First and Last Name
