Allan B. Cruse


Cruse attended college at Emory University where he majored in mathematics. He was awarded a fellowship for graduate study at UC-Berkeley by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation on condition that he agree to give "serious consideration" to pursuing a career in college teaching, and after finishing his Master's Degree at Berkeley, he accepted USF's offer in 1966 of a "temporary" position teaching classes in mathematics: that position morphed into a permanent one after he completed his mathematics doctorate, awarded by Emory University in 1974. Professor Cruse began teaching computer science courses over two decades ago, soon after USF acquired its first UNIVAC 90/60 mainframe. His current research interests are in the areas of systems programming for microcomputers and processor virtualization.
