Dr. Ku was described as one of the last polymaths: he made technical contributions in areas as diverse as electrical machinery, Liapunov methods, Volterra equations for nonlinear mechanics and nonlinear control, and boundary-layer heat transfer; and he was a poet, playwright, novelist, and composer. He served as president of Chinas National Music Conservatory. He was a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, receiving its Lamme Medal in 1972 and the Third Millennium Gold Medal in 2000. Many of his students became prominent, notably Zhang Zemin, president of the Peoples Republic of China, who visited him in his Philadelphia home a few years ago [The China Syndromes, March/April 1999].

He was also director of the Laboratory for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and medical director of the insomnia program. He came to Penn in 1993 as an assistant professor of psychiatry in the School of Medicine and in 1999 became an assistant professor of psychiatry at HUP, clinician-educator track. Last July he was promoted to associate professor. Previously he had held positions at the UCLA School of Medicine and the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute. Marty was a remarkably talented and innovative psychiatric physician who was extremely committed to his patients, his trainees, and his work. In recognition, the Martin P. Szuba Award for Excellence in Clinical Teaching and Research was established by the Department of Psychiatry. Marty was aware of this newly created award, and he was very touched that the department would honor him and his work in this fashion, said Dr. Dwight L. Evans, department chair and the Ruth Meltzer Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine, and Neuroscience.
