Peoples Perspectives;   Dr. James West is an inventor and Johns Hopkins professor still working at an age where most would be content with retirement. Now 84, Dr. West helped to develop the electret microphone, which forms the basis for technology used in over 90 percent of modern devices, including microphones, camcorders and other recording devices.

James Edward Maceo West was born on February 10, 1931 in Farmville, Va. As a young boy, West became enamored with electronics due to an accident with a radio. But West’s parents pushed their son to become a physician because of Jim Crow and racism which made it difficult for him to achieve his scientist dreams.

But he persevered, completing his coursework at Temple University in 1957 in Physics.
