About the Donor

Clifford Mosher’s career in electrical engineering began in the United States Navy, where he served as an electronics instructor from 1945 to 1949.  He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1965.  He worked the following year at the University of Missouri, and the year after that at the Edison Electric Institute. He then served on the faculty of Drexel University until joining WSU as a professor of power systems engineering in 1973.

Dr. Mosher’s special interest is in relay protection, design of high-voltage laboratory equipment, distribution system losses, and reliability.  In 1992, he received the Faculty Service Award from the Conferences and Institutes Division of the National University Continuing Education Association for his role in developing and coordinating major WSU conferences, including the Western Protective Relay Conference.

The School of EECS established the Clifford C. Mosher Excellence Fund upon his retirement.  It has been augmented with donations from alumni spearheaded by Dr. Mosher’s former student Hardev Juj of Seattle City Light.

This Fund shall be used to award undergraduate and graduate scholarships to students in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with preference given to students emphasizing power engineering.It shal also be for other purposes which will enhance programs in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, including course development, faculty development, and student projects.
