Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador George Reynolds George Reynolds was born at the victorious end of World War II, and grew up in a time of great optimism and boundless enthusiasm. He always wanted to be a scientist and in high school started learning about computers. George graduated from Michigan State University in 1967 with a Bachelor of Science degree, and immediately went on duty in the U. S. Army as a medical supply officer. Although his scientific career was sidelined, his curiosity and love for technology were not diminished. George took an electronics course and built his own color television set, oscilloscope, and digital multimeter. He continued to read extensively about computers, science, and technology, and devoured science fiction. After twelve years on active duty George went to graduate school and earned a Masters degree in radio and television broadcasting. He then went to work in the fledgling cable TV industry in 1981, and shortly thereafter was instrumental in computerizing videotape scheduling on the mainframe. Along the way George married his college sweetheart, and together they raised five children. Now that his own children are grown, and grandchildren are becoming a reality, George has been able to indulge his scientific curiosity once again, in amateur astronomy. He enjoys sharing his love of the skies with others.
