Bell System Technical Journals Library
Bell Telephone Laboratories was the research and development arm of the Bell System. Research findings were published in the Bell System Technical Journal. We have a nearly complete set of these publications, though we are missing some issues before 1952. Please let us know
if you have any that you would like to donate.
Pioneer Little Bavaria
The most important asset of the Bell System was its employees. In 1912, the employees [in Seattle] formed the Charles B. Hopkins Chapter #30 of The Telephone Pioneers of America. Known as The Pioneers, this is one of the longest-lived and most active employee service organizations of its type in North America.
