Kromer, A. P.
Principal work during this period has been concerned with the display systems development and reduction of the number of vacuum tubes in the central computer and drum system. Specifications for power equipment, output buffer drum have been studied jointly. Cost estimates for the prototype program and general planning for subsequent production were considered. Initial construction of pluggable units for the prototypes was started at IBM Plant 2.
