Dear members of the Berklee community,
On June 8, William “Bill” Gitt, former faculty member and chief engineer at Berklee, passed away at age 86.
Born in Hanover, Pennsylvania, Bill got his start at Dartmouth College in the early 1950s, as a student building electronics for the college’s radio station. He joined the U.S. Army after college, where he expanded his knowledge of electronics. Bill contracted at RCA for the army on the first silicone-based computer in Camden, New Jersey.
