Marty Timeline

The Computer History Museum sat down with Martin Cooper in May 2008 to capture his life story for their Oral History interviews with key pioneers and contributors of the information age. Read about Marty’s early years in Canada and the U.S. as the son of entreprenurial parents who immigrated from Russia. Marty knew he wanted to be an engineer in high school but recalls being a dreamer from an even earlier age. Read more about how Marty has turned those dreams into reality.
