Jacob Gaboury Named 2014-2015 Tomash Fellow

CBI is pleased to announce Jacob R. Gaboury as the 2014-2015 Adelle and Erwin Tomash Fellow!

Jacob is a Ph.D. candidate in Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University. His project, "Image Objects: Computer Graphics at the University of Utah, 1965-1979," explores the early history of computer visualization through the development of early 3D computer graphics at the University of Utah and the influence of the technical paradigms built by early graphics on the field of computer science. Jacob will be studying the Carl Machover Papers, which relate to the early history of computer graphics, recently acquired by the Charles Babbage Institute. Congratulations Jacob!
