Engineering Was Fun
This book is an autobiography of my years with IBM from 1951 through 1987. It contains descriptions and pictures of many custom IBM products including the unique podium from which numerous US Presidents gave their inaugural address. Other chapters discuss IBM’s early attempts at telecommunications, a machine that was designed for the 1960 Canadian census, the birth of the Universal Product Code (U.P.C.). This edition includes an appendix detailing the technical development of the U. P. C. code & symbol. This revision only changes the cover design and corrects a few typos.
