Hide Profile

The IBM Technical History Project was begun in 1980 following a suggestion made two years earlier by Emanuel R. Piore, former v.p. and chief scientist, to Chairman Frank T. Cary that books be written about IBM's technical history. The first volume, THE IBM FILE MEMORY DEVELOPMENT EFFORT, was printed internally in 1981. There followed three volumes published by MIT Press: MEMORIES THAT SHAPED AN INDUSTRY by Emerson W. Pugh (1984), IBM's EARLY COMPUTERS by Charles J. Bashe, Lyle R. Johnson, John H. Palmer, and Emerson W. Pugh (1986), and IBM's 360 AND EARLY 370 SYSTEMS by Pugh, Johnson, and Palmer (1991).
