The initially called W.R.G. Baker Award provided by the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE), was created in 1956 from a donation from Dr. Walter R. G. Baker (1892-1960) to the IRE. The award continued to be awarded as IEEE W.R.G. Baker Award by the Board of Directors of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), after the IRE organization merged into the IEEE in 1963. Recipients receive a certificate and honorarium "for the most outstanding paper reporting original work" in one of the IEEE publications, including the Transactions, Journals, and Magazines of the IEEE Societies or in the Proceedings of the IEEE.[1] You will find the award also named IEEE W.R.G. Baker Prize Paper Award or IEEE W.R.G. Baker Prize Award.
