LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., July 3, 2014 — Robert L. Woltz, one of the founders of SPIE, died June 14 at the age of 92.

He served as the society’s third president and spent more than a decade on its board of directors. After co-founding SPIE in 1955, Woltz worked for many years to establish new chapters of the society nationwide and eventually helped it expand in other countries. Woltz remained active with SPIE until his death.

In 1970, Woltz established Robert Woltz Associates Inc., which focused on designing and producing specialized photonics products.

He is survived by his wife, Betsy, two sons, Paul and Randy, and a daughter, Gina.
