The Bruce J. Anderson notebooks consist of professional notebooks from September of 1993 until May of 1995. Within the notebooks are meeting minutes, notes, project schedules, researcher contact information, vendor information, and diagrams. The notes are related to projects involving video formats, television transmitters and receivers, console electronics, and graphic chips. Also included are meeting notes and information related to Argonaut, a British video game developer.
H. Ray Warren (1921-2011) was a physicist, engineer, and inventor at the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) for thirty-one years, working primarily on magnetic tape recording innovations. Warren's papers and audiovisual materials form a small collection that documents developments in magnetic recording for audio and video tape, primarily related to magnetic heads and low crosstalk processing signals. This collection is arranged into eight series: Personal files; Patent files; Proposals; Reports and technical data/information; SelectaVision files; Publications and reprints; Work meeting notes and photographs; and Audio and video recordings. The documentation is fragmentary; none of the sets of papers is complete.
The Harry F. Olson papers include schematics and drawings, a body of articles and patents, and correspondence from Olson’s work in acoustics at various RCA research divisions.
Photographs include, predominantly black and white with a few color, images of loudspeakers, microphones, and the magnetic video tape recording system.
Sound tape reels contain over 40 recordings of 'word lists' presumably used by Olson in his work with the phonetic typewriter.
The J. Guy Woodward papers include correspondence, graphs, data, notes, and technical reports related to stress demagnetization. The papers also include ephemera from the Audio Engineering Society, the Salute to David Sarnoff by the Communications and Electronics Institute, and RCA.
Forty-three of Woodward's lab notebooks (1942-1981) can be found in Record group 26.
Paul Arthur, Jr., (1915-2000) spent most of his career as an industrial research chemist in the Central Research Department of the E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, where his most notable achievement was his work on Crolyn, a type of magnetic tape which was used primarily in the instrumentation, video, and computer industries. This small collection, assembled by Arthur's sister, Dorothy Arthur, consists of press releases, photographs, and published clippings related to Arthur's career with the DuPont Company.
This collection has two distinct subjects. A small number of photographs deal with videotape and video voice technology. While the majority of the images deal with the creation and testing of Home Fax. The home fax photographs are mainly basic images printed on plain paper when the system was being tested. There are also photographs of the hybrid television/fax machine showing how it could be used in the home.
Thirty-four of Houghton's lab notebooks (1940-1966) can be found in Record group 26.
