Herman Lukoff, a computer pioneer and fellow of the IEEE, was born on May 2, 1923, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Aaron and Anna (Slemovitz) Lukoff. He died of leukemia on September 24, 1979. At the time of his death, he lived in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. He was survived by his wife, Shirley Rosner Lukoff; his three sons, Arthur, Barry, and Andrew; and his daughter, Carol.

Having graduated from the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1943, Lukoff helped develop the ENIAC, EDVAC, and UNIVAC computers. He went with J. Presper Eckert and John W. Mauchly to their newly formed Electronic Control Company, which became Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation, then became part of Remington Rand in 1950 and Sperry Corporation in 1955. He would stay with the company until his death.

His memoir, From Dits to Bits, details his experiences as a first-hand observer of the birth of the computer industry.
