Ralph Baer (1922- 2014) was an engineer and inventor with more than 150 patents. His “brown box" controller became the original prototype for the first video game. He was born to a Jewish family in Germany who fled to the U.S. in 1938. He later served in the U.S. Army during WWII. He began his engineering career in New York and moved to Manchester, NH in 1955 where he lived and worked for the remainder of his life. He received many awards and honors throughout his career including the United States National Medal of Technology. His workshop is on display at the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
