Location: Knoxville, Tennessee, United States

Clyde McCall Davenport, retired Development Engineer at Lockheed Martin Energy Systems, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in electronics diagnosis and repair.

The U.S. Air Force introduced Mr. Davenport to electronic troubleshooting and repair. In addition, he became involved in engineering because while in high school he didn’t have any plans, but by the age of 20, he began to get unspoken words that there was something that he had to do, and it was time to start. Mr. Davenport joined the Air Force in 1959, which put him in electronics diagnosis and repair, and that changed his life completely. He stayed with the Air Force until 1963. After his service, he went to the University of Tennessee and earned a MS in physics in 1969 and a MS in mathematics in 1978.

Mr. Davenport is proud of creating automation of an electron beam welder in such a way as to set industry standards for precision and repeatability. After receiving his first degree, he joined the working force as a development engineer for the Union Carbide Corp. in 1969. Mr. Davenport remained in that position until 1984, when he joined Lockheed Martin Energy Systems development staff. He retired from that position in 1999 and became a consultant. Mr. Davenport continued to work as a consultant until he fully retired in 2015. As a testament to his success, Mr. Davenport received an award for technology excellence from the Department of Energy in 1989. He was also inducted as a member of various esteemed organizations including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Phi Kappa Phi and the Mathematics Association of America, to name a few.
