|Thesis||Actor systems for real-time computation (1978)|
|Doctoral advisor||Carl Hewitt|
Henry Givens Baker Jr. is an American computer scientist who has made contributions in garbage collection, functional programming languages, and linear logic. He was one of the founders of Symbolics, a company that designed and manufactured a line of Lisp machines. In 2006 he was recognized as a Distinguished Scientist by the Association for Computing Machinery.
He is notable for his research in garbage collection, particularly Baker's real-time copying collector, and on the Actor model.
Baker received his B.Sc. (1969), S.M. (1973), E.E. (1973), and Ph.D. (1978) degrees at M.I.T.
