IEEE Milestone

IEEE established the Milestones Program in 1983 in conjunction with the 1984 Centennial Celebration to recognize the achievements of the Century of Giants who formed the profession and technologies represented by IEEE.

slide3

IEEE Milestone

Each milestone recognizes a significant achievement that occurred at least twenty-five years ago in an area of technology represented in IEEE and having at least regional impact.

To date, more than seventy-five Milestones have been approved and dedicated around the world.

Citation

In 1950, in Room 64 of the Banting Institute at the University of Toronto, Drs. Wilfred Bigelow and John Callaghan successfully paced the heart of a,

dog using an external electronic pacemaker-defibrillator having implanted, electrodes. The device was developed by Dr. John Hopps at the National Research Council of Canada. This pioneering work led to the use of cardiac

pacemakers in humans and helped establish the importance of electronic devices in medicine.
