Amar Bose was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1929. He has had close ties with MIT since coming to the Institute as an undergraduate in the late 1940s. He earned an S.B. and an S.M. in electrical engineering in 1952 and went on to earn a Ph.D. in the same field in 1956. While teaching at MIT in the 1950s, he developed and cultivated a strong interest in sound systems, which led to nighttime research in labs such as Building 20’s anechoic chamber. In 1964, Professor Bose and five former students went into the business of developing and manufacturing quality high-fidelity equipment. The Bose Corporation in Framingham, Massachusetts, has been a leader in sound-related research and development ever since.
