Dr. Gorton R. Fonda, Research Chemist in the General Electric Research Laboratory, has retired after nearly forty years' service. Dr. Fonda and his associates developed the American version of the radar screen fourteen days after the problem had been assigned to the laboratory. The screen, upon which the radar signals are translated into visible light, was designed by Dr. Fonda and his associates at the behest of the National Defense Research Council during the year preceding the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
