ABSTRACT
<p>The story told here is of the members of a computer group-established by Northrop Aircraft in the mid-1940s to develop a guidance system for a US Air Force missile-who subsequently founded a company that designed and built a general-purpose, digital computer. Successful, but in need of funds, the company was eventually absorbed by a larger enterprise.</p>
