Abstract:This thesis presents a measurement of the mass of the W boson using data collected during the 1992-93 collider run at the Fermilab Tevatron with the CDF detector. A fit to the transverse mass spectrum of a sample of 3268 $\rm W\to\mu\nu$ events from 19.7 $\rm pb\sp{-1}$ of data yields a mass of $M\sbsp{W}{\mu} = 80.310 \pm 0.205$ (stat.) $\pm$ 0.120 (syst.) $\pm$ 0.050 (scale). This result is compared to previous measurements and current predictions.
