John Schott won RIT’s first major research grant from NASA in 1981 to calibrate the thermal band of Landsat 4, the Earth-observing satellite. His research laid the cornerstone for the university’s imaging science program and first doctoral program. The Frederick and Anna B. Wiedman Professor in RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science will retire from teaching this year.
