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.
Dear HPEM Community,
