Amar Gopal Bose (1929–2013) was an American academic and entrepreneur of Indian descent. An inventive electrical engineer and sound engineer, he was a pioneer of high-end audio technology and founded (1964) the Bose Corporation.
Amar Bose was born in Philadelphia to Nani Gopal Bose, a Bengali nationalist and Calcutta University physicist who fled to the US in 1920 to escape retribution for his hostility to British rule in India.
Amar Bose was educated and taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for over 45 years. In 2011, he donated a lion’s share of the company to MIT to support education and research.
