From a hazy dream of writing a great American novel to heading up the renowned Lockheed Skunk Works, Sherman Mullin explains how he came to be an engineer-in digital computing, moreover, when the rest of the world was still mostly analog. Like most people who entered the digital computing field in the 1950s, he had no formal education in this technology. Like others, he learned mostly by doing. He began with the US Air Force, then moved to the Burroughs Corporation in Philadelphia. He progressed through various jobs and ended up as president of Lockheed Advanced Development Company.
