No Registration Required – No Charges
Richard “Dick” Morley was one of the giants of modern manufacturing. The participants on this program
were fortunate enough to interact with him during his lifetime. Among his seminal contributions were
the programmable logic controller, automatic braking systems, and the floppy disk. We invite you to join
us in celebrating this remarkable life. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Morley for more details
about Dick Morley and http://whchronicle.com/episodes/remembering-richard-e-dick-morley-giant-inu-s-manufacturing/ for a 30-minute White House Chronicle video about Dick Morley.

Brief Biography of Dick Morley

Richard E. Morley (December 1, 1932 – October 17, 2017) was an American technologist who was
considered one of the "fathers" of the programmable logic controller (PLC) since he was involved with
the production of the first PLC for General Motors, the Modicon, at Bedford and Associates in 1968. The
Modicon brand of PLC is now owned by Schneider Electric. The PLC has been recognized as a significant
advancement in the practice of automation and has an important influence on manufacturing industry.

He was born in Clinton, Massachusetts, in 1932 and attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
where he studied physics.

Dick Morley was an inventor, machinist, author, consultant and engineer, his peers have acknowledged
his contributions with numerous awards from groups such as the International Society of Automation
(ISA), the Instrumentation Systems and Automation Society, Inc. magazine, the Franklin Institute, the
Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and the Engineering Society of Detroit. He was also inducted
into the Manufacturing Hall of Fame.

SME offers the Richard E. Morley Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award for outstanding
technical accomplishments in the manufacturing profession by engineers age 35 and under. Dick Morley
worked out of his barn in New Hampshire where he and his wife had provided a home to 40 foster
children. He died on October 17, 2017, in New Hampshire.
