Field Work Gets Underway for Physicists in Industry Project

Field work on the AIP History Center’s new Project to Document the History of Physicists in Industry got underway this spring. In March, project director Joe Anderson and project historian Tom Lassman spent several days at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center conducting interviews with senior scientists, R&D managers, and information professionals. We have since scheduled or completed interviews with scientists and others at Corning, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, Lucent Technologies, and Xerox. We will include 15 companies in the three-year study. For information on the project’s goals and work plan, see the Fall 2002 issue of the AIP History Newsletter .
