Dr. Anthony D. Johnson
Dr. Johnson was born in Brooklyn,New York. His father was a bus driver
for the area and his mom worked at the local post office. Since he had no role
models in his family what led him to become a scientist? One Christmas, when he
was nine years old he received a chemistry set. That turned everything around.
That chemistry set inspired him to become a scientist.
In later years, he went on to Samuel Tilton high school. After being
very successful through out his high school career, he went on to college. On
the graduation night from high school he got married. He was 17 years old. He
felt special because he was the first in his family to go to college.
Now he was facing a new challenge. He was going on to college. He went
to Poly Tech Institute. While in college he was invited to go on a trip to AT&T
Bell Laboratories in New Jersey. That trip was a big event in his life.
Today, he is working at the research department at AT&T Bell
Laboratories. There he is studying about lasers. His job is to experiment with
lasers and try to find quicker ways to send the phone messages through the phone
