The IEEE History Center is proud to announce the publication of an electronic book, US Government & Innovation: A Brief History in conjunction with IEEE-USA’s magazine Today’s Engineer. The book outlines the history of U.S. government involvement in technological innovation, which dates from the 1790s. The U.S. Government’s fostering of technologies such as the Morse telegraph, Hollerith’s punched-card machines, radio, radar, ENIAC and successor computers, semiconductors, and lithium batteries is described. As the debate continues about the role of government in research, the staff of the IEEE History Center hopes that this book will illuminate the discussion, and bring some of the rich history to light.
