> Richard "Dick" Baldwin, W1RU, of Damariscotta, Maine, passed away on
> Thursday, June 21, after a long struggle with Parkinson's Disease.
> He was 92. An ARRL Charter Life Member, Baldwin capped a long career
> on the ARRL staff with service as General Manager from 1975 until
> his retirement in 1982. He served as Secretary of the International
> Amateur Radio Union (IARU) from 1976-1982. After retirement, he
> continued his involvement as a volunteer, serving as IARU President
> from 1982-1999 and as ARRL International Affairs Vice President from
> 1982-1986.
> According to his daughter Judy, Baldwin's life revolved around
> telecommunications. He first became licensed in 1934 as W1IKE. An
> Amateur Extra class licensee, he earned DXCC, WAS and WAC, as well
> as membership in the ARRL A-1 Operator Club. A graduate of Bates
> College in Maine, he earned an MS in Physics from Boston University
> in 1948. Baldwin spent five years in the US Navy during World War
> II. In March 1943, while serving as Communications Officer aboard
> the USS Coghlan, he participated in the longest American naval
> daylight battle of the war: the Battle of the Komandorski Islands.
> After the war he served in the US Naval Reserve, achieving the rank
> of Commander.
> Baldwin began his career at ARRL Headquarters in 1948 as an
> Assistant Secretary. After a brief hiatus to work in the private
> sector in the early 1950s, he returned in 1956 as Managing Editor of
> QST, where he was responsible for production of the monthly member
> journal and all ARRL publications. In 1963, Baldwin became Assistant
> General Manager and almost immediately got involved with
> international matters. Dick organized the Intruder Watch one year
> later, and served as the ARRL Liaison between the amateurs who
> monitored the bands and the FCC. He was named by the ARRL Board to
> succeed John Huntoon, W1RW, on Huntoon's retirement as General
> Manager, the position now titled Chief Executive Officer, in 1975.
> In total, Baldwin wrote 234 articles and columns for QST.
> ARRL Chief Executive Officer David Sumner, K1ZZ, who succeeded
> Baldwin as General Manager in 1982, observes that Dick is
> responsible for much of Amateur Radio's success in retaining and
> expanding its international frequency allocations. "Beginning in
> 1964, strengthening our position at the International
> Telecommunication Union in preparation for what ultimately became
> the 1979 World Administrative Radio Conference, was a major
> preoccupation in Dick's life. He played a key role in developing and
> implementing the strategy that led to success. Sitting at Dick's
> elbow in the years leading up to WARC-79 was an extraordinary
> learning experience for which I will always be grateful."
> As IARU President, Baldwin led the development and adoption of a new
> IARU Constitution and oversaw the continued strengthening of the
> IARU as the spokesman for Amateur Radio at the ITU and in regional
> telecommunications organizations. In 1999, he was named IARU
> President Emeritus for his service to the IARU and the Amateur Radio
> Service.
> "I was saddened to hear of the passing of IARU President Emeritus
> Richard Baldwin," said IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH. "Dick was
> instrumental in securing new HF allocations at 10, 18 and 24 MHz
> during WARC-79. He was a key figure in the work of the IARU, and the
> Amateur Radio Service is in a better place today because of his
> leadership."
> Upon his retirement in 1982, Baldwin and his wife Phyllis moved to
> Maine where he became immersed in the local community. He was active
> in the Pen Bay Amateur Radio Club, the Bremen Historical Society and
> the Bremen Fire Department. He was also the Past President of the
> Maine Wood Carvers Association. Baldwin was a fan of Dixieland jazz
> -- particularly the music of Louis Armstrong -- astronomy and
> sailing. Sailing in his 35 foot ketch Endurance, named in honor of
> his hero Sir Ernest Shackleton, he taught himself how to navigate
> using a sextant. Baldwin also climbed Mt Katahdin many times.
> In 1991, Baldwin received the Hall of Fame Award from the Quarter
> Century Wireless Association (QCWA). In 1992, he was named the
> Dayton Hamvention Amateur of the Year. In 2003, he was inducted into
> the CQ Amateur Radio Hall of Fame.
> Baldwin is survived by his wife Phyllis, daughter Judy and son
> Glenn. A memorial service is planned for 11 AM Friday, June 29 at
> Second Congregational Church in Newcastle, Maine. In lieu of
> flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to
> the ARRL Second Century Fund, c/o ARRL, 225 Main St, Newington, CT
> 06111 (please contact ARRL Chief Development Officer Mary Hobart,
> K1MMH, for assistance via e-mail or by phone at 860-594-0397) or to
> the Maine Wood Carvers Association, c/o Barbara McCutcheon,
