As a physics pioneer, Robert Page helped turn a “radio detection and ranging” system into a household word: radar. Paul-born, Hamline-educated inventor figured out how to use the same antenna for transmitting and receiving signals bouncing off objects so Allied ships in World War II could accurately find German and Japanese enemies at sea and in the sky. Dropping two atomic bombs on Japan ended that war 70 years ago. But radar helped win the battles. To wit: Page’s radar advances, combined with his British colleagues’ work, played a key role in sinking dozens of German “wolfpack” submarines in the Atlantic Ocean in May 1943. You know that round screen with the streak of light rotating from its... That was Page’s breakthrough, showing both a target’s direction and range for the first time. “No one did more than Page to bring forth working radar from the mass of theoretical possibilities,” according to Invention and Technology magazine. But it was his ability to overcome money troubles — first as a child growing up in poverty and later as a government scientist during the cash-strapped Depression — that made Page’s radar innovations all the more remarkable. Career: 40 years as a physicist at the U. S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, where his radar innovations helped Allied forces target German and Japanese aircrafts and ships. Minnesota connections: Born in St. Paul in 1903. Returned to Minnesota after he retired. Died at 88 at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina in 1992. Education: A bachelor’s and honorary doctorate from Hamline University and a master’s degree in physics from George Washington University. Footnote: 19 sets of Page’s radar systems were aboard U. S. warships at Pearl Harbor, but none were turned on Dec. One of nine kids, Page was the son of a Methodist preacher and house painter. His father gave up the pulpit for a hardscrabble farm in Eden Prairie in 1909 when Page was 6. He left his one-room school in ninth grade, moving in with his older brother, Fred, an electrician in St. Paul. He helped his brother on electrical projects while attending St. Paul Central High School. He then moved to Minneapolis, where he tended furnaces and went to West High School. He dropped out for a year because of financial woes, driving a school bus between Bloomington and Eden Prairie. He finally graduated from West High School in 1923, at 20, and headed to Hamline University in St. Paul to major in religion like his father. Source: www.startribune.com
