Frederic Ira Parke graduated from the University of Utah with a BS degree in physics in 1965. He was then a graduate student of the University of Utah College of Engineering where he received his MS (1972) and PhD (1974) in computer science.
In 1972 in a project partially financed by DARPA Parke made the first 3D animation of a representation of a human face. This animation was wireframe graphics underneath but used the now classic Gouraud shading that estimates curving surfaces that was invented the previous year by computer scientist Henri Gouraud. He has worked at the New York Institute of Technology Computer Graphics Laboratory.
