IBM Research Laboratory Zurich: The Early Years
January-March 1998 (vol. 20 no. 1)
pp. 15-28

IBM hired me in 1955 as the director of its newly established Zurich research laboratory, which at that time had no staff, no offices, and no laboratories. I hired staff, leased offices, and later directed the construction of IBM's permanent research building in Switzerland. I left IBM in 1966, having personally recruited or approved of recruiting about 100 employees.
