About the Curator

The Curator, Bill Slatkin

Although I had a varied working life, involved in a number of businesses and professions, a highlight of my career was in my early 20s when I was a member of the Ampex Corporation public relations department. There, I had the privilege to meet some of the brightest and most accomplished electronics engineers of the time. It is in the spirit of honoring those individuals and their significant contributions to our technology that I dedicate this website. I hope to add information about the company, its achievements as well as its failures, to The Ampex Story over time. And I welcome contributions and comments from other people who are familiar with the history of this company and its importance as part of the “root-stock” of Silicon Valley.
