About the Author

Herbert W. Jackson published the first edition of Introduction to Electric Circuits in 1959. Known as "the father of the Ontario college system", Jackson taught electronics and electrical engineering technology for more than forty years. In addition to authoring Introduction to Electric Circuits--a text that would become the industry standard and shape curricula for years to follow--Jackson was a member of the Ontario Ministry of Education, where he oversaw the creation of the province's community colleges. Dale Temple teaches electronics engineering technology at the College of the North Atlantic, where he has served as coordinator of the electronics program. Prior to working on Introduction to Electric Circuits, Temple contributed as a coauthor to the Canadian editions of Boylestad and Nashelsky's Electronic Devices and Theory and Tocci's Digital Systems: Principles and Applications. Brian Kelly is formerly an instructor at the College of the North Atlantic, where, in addition to teaching, he served as coordinator for the introductory circuit analysis course. In addition to coauthoring Introduction to Electric Circuits, Kelly created the lab manual and solutions manual that accompany the text.
