In 1962, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) awarded its Medal of Honor to Edward V. Appleton. He was cited "for his distinguished pioneer work in investigating the ionosphere by means of radio waves." He spent most of his professional career in teaching and research at the University of London and at Cambridge University. He was the author of approximately 140 scientific papers, primarily on the physics of the upper atmosphere. An interesting footnote to his Medal of Honor award is that he had received the Nobel Prize in Physics 15 years earlier.
