Abstract:

The first issue of RTM, then Research Management, featured case histories of research from National Cash Register, Westinghouse Electric and Atlas Powder. Subsequent 1958 issues carried reports from General Electric, General Motors, Corning Glass, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Hercules Powder, RCA, American Cyanamid, Esso Standard Oil, Esso Research and Engineering—and the first Presidential science adviser, James R. Killian. From a time when Sputnik and Univac captured the science headlines, they provide insights into the management of scientists and engineers that remain surprisingly relevant today.
