New Publication by Associate Director

CBI associate director Jeff Yost has just published "Manufacturing Mainframes: Component Fabrication and Component Procurement at IBM and Sperry Univac 1960-1975," part of a special issue of History and Technology 25 (Sept. 2009) on 'high tech manufacture'. Jeff's article deals with these two companies' radically differing strategies for securing supplies of semiconductor components, and is based in part on research Jeff did at the Hagley Museum and Library.
