Biographies: OBITUARY - Aaron Finerman

Aaron Finerman, one of the founders of the Annals of the History of Computing, died April 6, 1994, in Boca Raton, Florida, after a short illness following a heart attack. Aaron had just passed his 69th birthday on April 1, and had been present at the induction of the inaugural group of ACM fellows a month earlier.

Aaron was the chair of the AFIPS Editorial Committee at the time that the Annals was under consideration (1977), and in that capacity he spearheaded the work to get approval from the AFIPS Board. He personally selected Bernie Galler as the first editor-in-chief.

Aaron was continuing to serve ACM as the EIC for Computing Reviews, another journal without which much of our research would be much more difficult.

It is the intention of the editors to publish a longer obituary in a future issue of the Annals.
