In this talk I start with a very brief outline of the concept of "cybernetics" from BCE 750 to AD 1956.Then I recall my experience as a graduate student in control engineering at the University of Cambridge in the late 1950s. Contributions of the three dominant figures in control in the 1960s - Pontryagin, Bellman, and Kalman - are summarized, followed by a more detailed account of subsequent control research in which I have been personally involved in collaboration with several notable researchers as colleagues and friends.  


W.M. Wonham received the B. Eng. degree in engineering physics from McGill University in 1956, and the Ph.D. in control engineering from the Universityof Cambridge (U.K.) in 1961.
From 1961 to 1969 he was associated with several U.S. research groups in control. Since 1970 he has been a faculty member in Systems Control, with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Toronto.
Wonham's research interests have included stochastic control and filtering,geometric multivariable control, and discrete-event systems. He is the author of "Linear Multivariable Control: A Geometric Approach" (Springer-Verlag: 3rd ed. 1985) and co-author (with C. Ma) of "Nonblocking Supervisory Control of State Tree Structures" (Springer-Verlag: 2005).
Wonham is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Life Fellow of the IEEE,a Foreign Member of the (U.S.) National Academy of Engineering, and an Honorary Professor of the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. In 1987 he received the IEEE Control Systems Science and Engineering Award and in 1990 was Brouwer Medallist of the Netherlands Mathematical Society. In1996 he was appointed University Professor in the University of Toronto, and in 2000 University Professor Emeritus
