Carl Baum
The SUMMA Foundation was founded in 1973 and registered with the IRS as a philanthropic organization to promote scientific and educational activities in the field of electromagnetics. Initial funds to the Foundation were contributed by Dr. Carl E. Baum who has, from time to time, also donated the monetary parts of his scientific awards to the Foundation plus additional funds. Contributions have also been made to the Foundation by donors interested in promoting various scientific activities in the field of electromagnetics. Some of the Foundation activities have had surpluses deposited back with the Foundation.
