      From NYT obit:
      Martin founded Electronics for Medicine in 1950. As its president and research director, he developed many sophisticated instruments.

      They included the first cardiac monitor for operations, a recovery-room patient monitor that was the precursor of today's intensive care equipment and a physiological recourding system used in Nobel-Prize-winning work in cardiac catheterization.

      He wrote and lectured on medical uses of electronics and received an honorary doctorate from NY Medical College.

      His company, in Pleasantville, grew to 700 employees. When Honeywell Inc. bought it in 1979, he shared more than $1 million of his profit with the workers.

      In his retirement, he combined his interests in technology, scuba diving and travel to develop devices for underwater photography and took pictures to illustrate children's books written by his wife, Ann McGovern. He graduated from Columbia Uniersity.

      A service to celebrate his life was held on Feb. 22, 1992 at the Community Unitarian Church, White Plains. Donations in his name made to WESPAC.
