ByGeorge J. Laurer

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
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.) and more. It has an appendix dedicated to my development of the U.P.C. Barcode & Symbol. This edition has a new cover design and some typographical errors corrected.
