To those that best know him, Prof. Eastman is not only one of the most congenial academicians in the world, but is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge relating to compound semiconductor materials, structures, and devices. Moreover, he is always most willing to enthusiastically share the details of his knowledge. His personal contributions to the field are multitudinous. He has mentored over 110 successful Ph.D. candidates. Eighteen of these have founded new businesses, 19 have become academicians, 16 have become directors, managers, CEOs, or VPs in industry, one is currently the associate director of the FBI, and 3 have already retired. Three hundred and eighty seven of his over 700 papers have been cited in the Science Citation Index, with 9 of them having over 100 citations each. His earliest cited paper was published in 1964. In this paper, several of his traits and accomplishments along with their impact on his students, the DoD, the scientific community, and our standard of living are highlighted. Projections are also made of future impacts.
