From the AFCCE website - Sep 9, 2001 - I am sad to report the loss of the last living charter member of the AFCCE, Ronald H. Culver. Ronald H. Culver passed away on Sunday morning, September 9, 2001.

Culver was born in Milan, MI, and received his bachelor of scinece in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. After graduating, he went to work for the consulting firm of Jansky and Bailey where he started in 1936.
