Dr. Eschenfelder was born in Newark, NJ and raised in Glen Ridge, NJ.  He attended Rutgers briefly before joining the US Navy in October 1943.  He served in the Pacific Theater in World War II as part of a SeaBees unit on Hawaii, Tinian and Eniwetok.  He also served in the occupation forces in Bremerhaven, Germany, after the war's end.  He returned to Rutgers on the GI Bill, where he earned a BS in Physics in 1949 and a PH.D. in Physics in 1952.  He then worked for IBM from 1952 to 1981.
