Re: Dr. Charles Carter, PhD

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I attended the Structures Congress in Austin and so did Charlie Carter.  It was announced at the awards luncheon that Charlie could not attend because he had just defended his PhD dissertation the previous day.  Charlie then popped up in the back of the room.  Later, at a reception with adult beverages in hand, Charlie confirmed to me that he did indeed receive his PhD a day earlier from IIT, the Illinois Institute of Technology.  He repeated it a couple of times, wanting to make sure that I understood that IIT was not ITT.  When I asked if this meant a promotion, he responded that it allows him to keep his current job.
Oh, and he still answers to Charlie.

At the 2009 Structures Congress, rumor was rampant that our AISC mainstay had received his PhD.  If anyone (Charlie??) on this list is able to confirm this, I would appreciate it. 
If confirmed, I am sure that we all would like to congratulate him. 
Well done!!
The question at hand is what is Charlie's appropriate name:
Dr. Charles Carter, PhD
Dr. Charlie Carter, PhD
Dr. Charlie   (when he gets his television show)
Old Doc Charlie  (when he gets to be my age)
