Early life and education
Beasley was born at Stanford hospital, moving to Hawaii during World War II with his parents, who were social scientists. He was a high school and college basketball player, earning All-Metropolitan honors at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, and playing for the Cornell Big Red in 1958-59.
Beasley joined the faculty of Harvard University in 1968 where he remained until accepting a position at Stanford in 1974. He was recruited to Stanford by Theodore Geballe, and after Aharon Kapitulnik joined the applied physics department, the three Stanford superconductivity researchers became known as the "KGB Group."
