E. H. Putley
Dr Ernest Henry Putley (1922 – 29 November 2009), more commonly known as E. H. Putley, was a British scientist and prolific author. He is best known for his work on radar, the Hall Effect, and infra-red spectroscopy.
Putley was born in South London and graduated with a BSc in physics from Queen Mary College in 1942. In August 1942 he started work at the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) in Malvern, which was later known as RSRE, DERA, and more recently Dstl & QinetiQ. After the war he returned briefly to Queen Mary College to complete his PhD.
Dr Putley retired from RSRE in 1982 but returned almost immediately as an unpaid volunteer to record the history of the military electronic developments with which he had been involved for so long.
