John Shepherd-Barron
Birth: Jun. 23, 1925
Death: May 15, 2010

Inventor. He is credited with devising the first viable automated cash dispenser (which later evolved into the automated teller machine or ATM). Born in India to a Scottish father, his mother Dorothy Shepherd was an Olympic tennis player for the United Kingdom in 1924. He attended the University of Edinburgh and Trinity College at Cambridge, where he studied History and Economics, before service in Burma and the Middle East during World War II. In 1950, he went to work with the De La Rue Firm and gradually advanced to regional director of operations in North America before retiring in 1985. In 1965, he conceived the idea of a cash dispenser for the purpose of convenience during banking after-hours, when he attempted to cash a check and the bank was closed. The first machine was installed at Barclays Bank in a suburb of London in 1967. (bio by: C.S.)
