The RCA Selectron -- The people of the RAND Corporation


RAND logotype

The RAND Corporation was formed in 1948 from its roots as a United States Air Force "Research ANd Development" project within Douglas Aircraft Company. An independent and non-profit organization, still based in Santa Monica, California, RAND has grown far beyond its charter as a "defense think-tank" to become a leading enclave for research and analysis on varied scientific and social topics. The RAND designed computer, the JOHNNIAC, was the only functional project to use the RCA Selectron memory tube.
