The GE Research and Development Center: Stories of Innovation from the Front Line

New Library Research Article Series – The GE Research and Development Center: Stories of Innovation from the Front Line

 The Schenectady County Historical Society presents an ongoing series of articles written by GE Research and Development Center scientists and engineers who helped pioneer some of the remarkable innovations which changed the course of the 20th century and whose impact continues to be felt in the 21st.

The series is spearheaded by Walter L. Robb, Director of the Center from 1986 -1992.  Walt initiated the series in a SCHS Newsletter article (V, 61, Jan. – Mar., 2017) entitled X-Ray Machines, CT Scanners, MRIs: The Pivotal Role of the GE Research and Development Center, and is reproduced as part of the Library Blog series at http://schenectadyhistorical.org/admin/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Walter-L.-Robb.pdf

Kirby Vosburgh, PhD, How GE Research Developed MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Guided Surgery

Dale M. Brown, PhD, Silicon to Silicon Carbide Electronics-50 Years of Progress

Martin A. Strosberg, Oppenheimer and the A-Bomb: An Historic Meeting in Schenectady

New contributions by former GE scientists and engineers will be posted periodically.
