© 2017 This paper comprises a review of Bernard Roth's technical contributions and contributions to his professional community. Particular attention is paid to his role in the establishment of the unique design program of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. Another theme is the creation of one of the very first research programs in digitally controlled robotics in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. No review of Roth's career would be complete without touching on the numerous fundamental contributions to research in linkages and robotics. At the same time it is not possible in a work on this type to examine every one of his publications and other contributions. We have endeavored to select the most important, but that is, of course, a personal judgment.
