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 doctorate 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.
