Cassius Chapin Cutler (December 16, 1914 – December 1, 2002) was an American electrical engineer at Bell Labs. His notable achievements include the invention of the corrugated waveguide and differential pulse-code modulation (DPCM).



He was born on December 16, 1914 in Springfield, Massachusetts to Paul A. Cutler and Myra Chapin. He received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 1937. On September 27, 1941 he married Virginia Tyler in Waterford, Maine.[1].

In 1979 Cutler left Bell Labs to become a professor of applied physics at Stanford University.

He died on December 1, 2002, North Reading, Massachusetts[1][2].
