William English (BSEE 1950), who helped invent the computer mouse and made other significant contributions to the computer interface, passed away July 26. He was 91 years old.
According to The New York Times columnist Cade Metz, English's work "presaged not only the desktop and laptop computers that rose to the fore in the 1980s and ’90s, but also the smartphones and tablets that would come to suffuse everyday life."
