John Joseph Carey, Emeritus Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has passed away November 10, 2001, at the age of 89. Professor Carey was born in Boston, and received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from MIT in 1934 and 1953. From 1934-41, he worked on the Panama Canal, serving with the Panama Canal Department as Associate Electrical-Mechanical Engineer. He then joined an engineering firm in Boston. He was a Captain in the U.S. Army from 1942-45, serving in the Corps of Engineers 1943-45, and he was awarded the Campaign Star in 1944. During 1945-46, Prof. Carey taught at the Universities of New Mexico and Kansas. In 1946 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Michigan; he was promoted to Associate Professor in 1948 and to Professor in 1957. Prof. Carey retired in 1972. While at the University of Michigan, Prof. Carey was co-director of the Power Systems Laboratory, and taught courses in power systems analysis, electro-mechanical energy conversion, engineering economics, and circuits. He also taught courses in power systems for employees of the Consumers Power Company, the Commonwealth Associates, and the Detroit Edison Company. Throughout his career at Michigan, Professor Carey demonstrated unique capabilities as a teacher, researcher, and consultant in electric power systems and energy conversion. Prof. Carey also gave generously of his time and talents to administrative and University-wide committees. He was very active in the Michigan Society for Professional Engineers, for which he was a past president, and the American Institute of Electrical Engineers; he was also a member of Sigma Xi, Eta Kappa Nu, and IEEE. Prof. Carey spent 10 weeks in India, where he had been stationed in the Army, in 1965 working on curriculum issues under the sponsorship of the Government of India and U.S. Aid. Upon his retirement, Prof. Carey was a frequent consultant in product liability and personal injury lawsuits. Prof. Carey is survived by his wife, Grace; their children, John Jr., Sharon, and Karen; six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; one sister Louise; and 16 nieces and nephews. The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science offers its condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of John Joseph Carey, and expresses its gratitude for his 26 years of distinguished service to the University of Michigan.
