I think that's Ronald Reagan on slide 5.

It is RR, with Watson Laboratory's Herb Grosch.  I wonder what RR was doing there in 1954?

Kind of looks like it doesn't it? Maybe a bit too tall and thin. I guess it could be though, he was that thin for a while.

Looking through those IBM pages that Hailey links to in this story, i was surprised how many memory innovations IBM tried.

He hosted General Electric Theater beginning in 1954, presumably it was something to do with that TV series.

such an odd choice of 11

Nothing about early magnetic disks or sealed "Winchester" drives, nothing about floppy disks, nothing about high speed printers, nothing about their tape drives and robot archives, the switch to semiconductor memory, pioneering transactions and database with CICS/IMS/DB/2 and System/R, SQL,  development of languages like PL/1, nothing about the PC or OS/2, advanced research on superconducting, on atomic force microscopes, research labs on the semantics of programming languages, introduction of virtual machines .. huge changes in the business.  Even things IBM did not necessarily wish to do like opening up and documenting all interfaces after the consent decree, caused tectonic shifts in the industry.

Some of the items in the list seem relatively minor.

No IBM helicopters either :-)

Maybe the author was being nice to IBM by not showing how far IBM has fallen from its best years.

[I'm not kidding about the helicopter.  IBM Federal System Division sold an anti-submarine warfare helicopter.]
