Profile: John R. Stokes
JJT's prominence in the digital imaging industry began in the mid-80s during John R. Stokes' work with the National Geographic society, the Library of Medicine and the Library of Congress.It was during these projects that his research and development background, expansive knowledge of photography and early videodisc technologies broke new ground in digital imaging and ultimately proved invaluable to these institutions.
John R. Stokes was the chief scientist and primary architect of JJT's industry leading technology and processes, His high standards, spirit of innovation and thoughtful counsel continue to guide the organization growth and success.
Following is a profile of Mr. John R. Stokes.
John R.'s educational background in Physics set the stage for his innovation-focused approach to problem solving:
1953 BS, Math and Physics, East Texas State University1956 MA, Physics, The University of Texas1958-64 Physics and Technical Writing from the Texas Christian University1975 Graduate Courses in Educational Psychology and Communications, University of Texas
In 1957, John R. became the first person to measure the neutron spectrum from a portable nuclear reactor and was also instrumental in designing the experiment.John R. performed pre- and post-analysis for numerous nuclear shielding experiments between 1958 and 1964 and served as scientific advisor on radiation shielding experiments at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory - Tower Shielding Facility from January through June 1958.From 1963 through 1965, Mr. Stokes supervised the technical activities of 35 engineers, physicists, and mathematicians during one of the last above ground nuclear-weapons tests in Nevada in 1962.Mr. Stokes has authored, or co-authored, 19 publications on nuclear shielding between 1958 and 1971.
The genesis of JJT, Inc. occurred when John R. founded Stokes Imaging Services in 1971, and served as its president until1994.Stokes became the largest duplicator of slides in the United States during its first 12 years, and became a leader in electronic imaging during its last ten years.John R. became a member of the Association for Multi-Image in 1978, served as president of the Association during 1981-82, and was awarded life membership in 1993.
John R. created the conceptual design, and directed the development of, animation cameras, film transports, and precision light sources to improve the accuracy and efficiency of slide duplication and systems for the conversion of photographic images to analog and digital formats.He was responsible for the conceptual design and implementation of the Digital Imaging System still being used for digitizing some upwards of a million prints and photographs for the Library of Congress.This long-term, durable relationship began with John R.'s breakthrough work in providing conversion of images to videodisks.John R. was using digital images in the 80's as an intermediate to the videodisks and, in many ways, pioneered this field.
During 1986 through 1998, John R. wrote several technical proposals that resulted in Stokes being awarded contracts for image conversion services from major clients.During the same period, Stokes was awarded a contract for capturing and transferring images for the National Geographic Society.
