1944-2010 and undated
8 boxes (8 linear feet)

The Dr. Jerry Holmes Papers consist of books, charts, coding materials, correspondence, diagrams, printed material both published and in draft form, graphs, journals, models, patents, photography, reports, and research materials related to Dr. Holmes’ career in the United States Air Force, Texas Instruments. Much of the material focuses on Dr. Holmes’ role in the creation of the Global Positioning System, or GPS.
Dr. Jerry Dale Holmes was born on March 11, 1937 in a farmhouse in the Irick rural community in Floyd County, Texas, near the town of Lockney, Texas. His father was Oliver Wendell Holmes and his mother was Buena Lou Weems Holmes. Jerry attended Irick country school for grades one through four, then rode a bus into Lockney schools for grades five through twelve. He graduated from Lockney High School in 1955 and attended Texas Technological College for four years, receiving a BS degree in Electrical Engineering in 1959. In the summer of 1960 Dr. Holmes married Glynda Kay Steelman, a Texas Tech student from Plainview, Texas.
Having been an AFROTC cadet for four years, at graduation he was commissioned Second Lieutenant in the USAF. He was granted a delay by the USAF for a year to complete a Masters degree. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that year, earning a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1960, supported by a Schlumberger Foundation Fellowship. His thesis advisor at MIT was Prof. Amar G. Bose who later founded the Bose Corporation which became a world leader in a wide variety of high quality audio products. Dr. Holmes’s master’s thesis was an audio experiment related to Dr. Bose’s extensive investigations into requirements for high quality audio reproduction in the home. In the summer of 1960 Dr. Holmes married Glynda Kay Steelman, a Texas Tech student from Plainview, Texas.
From 1960 until 1963 Dr. Holmes fulfilled his military obligation by serving at the USAF Satellite Test Center in Sunnyvale, California, where he participated in the Command and Control of military satellites during the early days of the USA military space program. Leaving the USAF in 1963 Dr. Holmes enrolled in a PhD program at Oklahoma State University, supported by a NASA Traineeship. He received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from OSU in 1965 and accepted employment at the military electronics division of Texas Instruments in Dallas, Texas. He then worked for Texas Instruments (TI) for 31 years on a variety of military programs performing systems analysis, system engineering, signal processing analysis and design, algorithm design, system simulation and technical direction. In 1976 he began a fifteen year stint working on a wide variety of military programs related to the Global Positioning System (GPS) for the US Department of Defense. Texas Instruments was an early manufacturer of precision GPS Receiver Systems for DOD customers. Dr. Holmes was a key contributor to the system design of military GPS receivers for man-portable GPS receivers, high-dynamics airborne receivers, receivers carried by Minuteman Missiles during two flight tests, and earth satellite GPS receivers.
Dr. Holmes was the last Technical Director for the G/AIT program at Texas Instruments which built a complex receiver/antenna system that was designed to be installed on military aircraft and used should a thermonuclear war erupt between the US and the Soviet Union. The Ground/Airborne IONDS Terminal would listen to signals transmitted by GPS satellites whose nuclear burst detection sensors would be relaying to earth the specific details concerning the location, timing, and strength of nuclear detonations near the surface of the earth. Such information would be used in the determination of where the US should aim its remaining ICBM inventory. Such a nuclear scenario would create a heavily disturbed ionosphere which would massively degrade the GPS radio waves as they passed through on their way to the G/AIT airborne system antennas. Dr. Holmes was also one of the principle designers of the Fade Resistant Receiver portion of the G/AIT system which was designed to maintain successful tracking of the GPS radio signals during this period of peak stress. Following Dr. Holmes work on GPS related programs, he worked for several years on classified programs related to Electronic Warfare (EW) where the goal is early detection of hostile radio and radar signals so that appropriate defensive and/or offensive measures can be taken in real time on the battlefield. Dr. Holmes was Technical Director for several years on one such classified system.
During his career Dr. Holmes was author or co-author for eleven technical publications and inventor or co-inventor leading to eleven patents. Dr. Holmes is considered one of the pioneers of the Receiver Systems portion of the Global Positioning System (GPS) due to the work he did at Texas Instruments beginning in 1976 and continuing for the next fifteen years. Dr. Holmes took an early retirement incentive offer from Texas Instruments and retired the last day of 1996 after working for TI military divisions for thirty-one years. In 1987 Texas Instruments cited Dr. Holmes for his technical contributions to Global Navigation by naming him a Texas Instruments Fellow, an honor that is restricted to the top 1% of the technical staff at TI. In 1989 Dr. Holmes was named a Distinguished Engineer by Texas Tech University. In 1996 Dr. Holmes received the Melvin R. Lohmann Medal from the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology at Oklahoma State University which is awarded to one former student of OSU each year. Dr. Holmes is a Registered Professional Engineer in the state of Texas, currently on Inactive status.
Dr. Holmes’ wife, Glynda Kay Steelman (known today as Kay Holmes), was born in Lawton, Oklahoma, on February 3, 1942 to James Alvin Steelman and Vera Elnora Stair Steelman. At age 7 Kay moved to a farm in Hale County, Texas, near Plainview. She attended East Mound country school for grades three through six and then Plainview schools, finally graduating Plainview High School in 1958 at age 16. She enrolled at Texas Tech in 1958 as a Business Education major where her brother James Eldon Steelman introduced her to fellow EE classmate, Jerry Holmes, in January 1959. Jerry and Kay became engaged during the summer of 1959 while Jerry worked in the Summer Development Program at Texas Instruments in Dallas just prior to beginning graduate studies at MIT in September. Jerry and Kay married in June 1960 at the First Methodist Church in Lockney. Upon Jerry’s completion of graduate studies at MIT, they drove from Boston to Sunnyvale, California where they lived during his three year USAF tour. There, they had their first child, Kurt Alan Holmes, in 1962. Their next child, Eric Lane Holmes, was born in Dallas in 1966, and their daughter, Erin Lynette Holmes, was born in Dallas in 1970.
