Alan L. McWhorter, a long-time professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and a division head and researcher at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, has died in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was nearly 88.
His family said his death was unexpected despite some recent health problems. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
