USMA 1950 Chair of Advanced Technology

Dr. Aaron St. Leger

At our reunion in 1980 the class decided to sponsor an academic chair at USMA to be funded by gifts and bequests.  The fund pays salary and other expenses for the Chair.  The incumbent of the chair teachers cadets, conducts research and mentors both cadets and faculty members and research projects.  On 7-8 February 2019, Dr. Aaron St. Leger and four cadets attended the IEEE Texas Power and Energy Conference at Texas A&M University to report results of their research.  The cadets were among 300 presenters making poster presentations on their research. Two of the cadets took home awards.  Cadet Jared Fritz was awarded third place and Cadet Birgitta Anderson took first place overall.  More information can be obtained from Jack Wagner (
