Arnold Beckman and various unidentified men and women, photographed during Beckman's visit to the Berkeley Division. Four of the images include the EASE (Electronic Analog and Simulation Equipment).
Beckman Instruments' analog computers were being produced by their Berkeley Division as early as 1953. The company produced analog computers -- also called automation, data reduction, or data handling systems -- for the petroleum, aerospace, and defense industries. Beckman Instruments eventually stopped producing these systems after their cost and the time required to customize them kept them from being widely adopted.
All but two photographs are encapsulated, and all bear a photographer's stamp as well as an individual number.
