(from the foreword). The volume was adapted from the proceedings of the First Institute on Electronics in Management at the American Institute in Nov 1955. The authors also published a 1965 title "Automation and electronics in publishing".

Prof Verzuh worked on the MIT Rapid Arithmetic Machine at MIT, and was active in early computing.
