Since its establishment some 20 years ago, the IEEE History Center has been collecting oral-history interviews of prominent engineers. Center staff and volunteers have conducted more than 400 interviews, the majority of which are now available on the Center's Website. Over the years, these interviews have been extensively used in scholarly research and in popular books, articles, and exhibits. Television pioneer Vladimir Zworykin contributed one of the earliest of these interviews in 1975, and the quotations in this article come from this interview.
