  • Notes 
    • Richard Kent Snouffer graduated from Lexington, MA high School in June, 1962. He attended the Univ. of Rochester, NY, from 1962 to 1968, earning a B.S. and then an M.S. degree from the University's College of Engineering and Applied Science, Institute of Optics. His 1968 master's dissertation was entitled "Development of a Semi-Automatic Microscope Focusing Mechanism."

      Following college, he served 5 years in the U.S. Navy, with a tour of duty aboard USS Worden (DLG-18) off the coast of North Viet Nam (1969) and service aboard USS Leahy (DLG-16) in the Mediterranean (1971). His training included a tour of duty aboard the USS Wasp (CVS-18) where, on 7 June 1965, he witnessed the splashdown of the Gemini IV (GT-4) space capsule. He was a Program Manager at Optical Coating Laboratory, Inc., Santa Rose, CA, from 1973 to 1975. He was an engineer with Bausch & Lomb from 1975 to 1978 and then ran his own optical business in Warren, PA, from 1979 to 1982. He was an engineer and manager with Hughes Aircraft, El Segundo, CA, from 1982 through 1998, and has been Director of Energy Services for Univ. of S. Cal. since then. In 2007 he "down-sized" to half-time work at USC.
