RCA Engineers Oral History Collection

The RCA Engineers Interviews collection is a series of oral histories conducted by Mark Heyer and Al Pinsky of RCA Laboratories in the mid-1970s. The collection does not necessarily contain every interview with an alum of RCA that can be found in the Center's collection.

  • James Hillier (#029) - Developed the first scanning electron microscope in the United States and served as the director of research at RCA.
  • Harold B. Law (#028) - Focused on the development of camera tubes, including work on the image orthicon, the vidicon camera tube, and the photo-deposition of phosphors.
  • Humboldt W. Leverenz (#027) - Worked on luminescent materials for development of an all-electronic television and made significant contributions to the development of the fluorescent lamp.
  • Charles W. Mueller (#025) - A pioneer in solid-state electronics, he worked in RCA's tube department.
  • Harry F. Olson (#026) - Known for his contributions to musical sound reproduction, he worked in acoustic research at RCA for 40 years.
  • Jan Rajchman (#024) - Did extensive work on computer memory and was involved in Project Lightning. He was also the director of RCA's computer research laboratory.
  • Paul Weimer (#022) - Helped produce the Image Orthicon television camera tube and a solid-state camera tube.
  • Irving Wolff (#030) - Worked in the acoustics department and on microwave development that led to the development of aviation radar.
  • Vladimir Zworykin (#021) - A director of electronic research at RCA and an honorary vice president. He was a pioneer of television technology and invented the Iconoscope.
