From Redwood Forests to Grains of Sand 


‘“I’ve always been interested in the outdoors and taking the kids camping, hiking, and river rafting. Winding down from Applied and getting out of being CEO, I thought that I wanted to spend more time on the environmental community. I felt I needed to give back.’ – Jim Morgan If you have a personal computer on your desk or in your briefcase, you should thank James Morgan. As chairman of Applied Materials, Jim has been hugely responsible for the way we live today – his company creates and sells the technology that makes the integrated circuit inside your computer. And the technology that makes your new flat-screen television “flat” likely started with Applied as well. It’s an internationally acclaimed, cutting-edgel Silicon Valley success story. Jim Morgan’s vision is broader than building Applied Materials into the world's largest semiconductor equipment company and leading producer of nano (very tiny) manufacturing technology. It also includes concern for Giant Redwood trees and deserts. Jim looks out for them as well, through his involvement with Nature Conservancy…”
