About Joshua E. Neimark: Dr. Joshua E. Neimark
was born in March 1931 in Sea Bright, New Jersey.
He demonstrated extraordinary intelligence, but
also was prone to serious respiratory disease.
He completed public school with distinction, and
received an undergraduate degree in mechanical
engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT), a master's degree from the California
Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. from MIT.
He succumbed to illness in April, 1961, at the
age of 30 and his doctoral dissertation was published
posthumously. The award, established in his memory
by his sister, Dr. Edith D. Neimark, is intended
to assist young scientists in attaining a career
in their chosen field, a goal that Joshua Neimark
did not live to achieve.
