Abstract:

McDonald focuses on early computing activities at Remington Rand after discussing his own career: his undergraduate education in electrical engineering at the University of Minnesota and his graduate work at Iowa State and the University of Chicago; his years during the second world war in the Navy; and his employment with Northwest and Braniff airlines before joining Remington Rand's computer operations in 1953. McDonald discusses at length the Remington Rand organization: business strategies, upper level management, marketing, allocation of resources, product development, and the decentralized nature of operations.
