With degrees from Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, science influences his creation process. Founder of Transitron Electronic Corporation, his work specialized in transistor design and manufacturing, his tenure lasted thirty years before devoting himself to sculpture. Wikipedia More information on Transitron Electronics The Transitron Electronic Corporation (hereafter referred to as Transitron’), began as a small venture firm in 1952 and found their early success in making mil-spec higher voltage’gold-bonded’ diodes. No doubt having secured the Western Electric transistor license they started into the semiconductor market sometime in 1953. By late 1954 Transitron had secured cross-licensing approval with several larger manufacturers and was producing the more common junction types: the 2N34 (RCA), the 2N43 (GE) and the 2N65 Ray. One of the keys to Transitron’s early product expansion was a sizable investment in R&D, including a large staff of scientists and engineers. Their successful work on silicon diodes and rectifiers well prepared the company to move into silicon transistor manufacturing, following close behind T. But when electronics dipped in mid-1961, partly because of fast-rising imports, none felt the shake-out so sharply as Transitron (which closed last week at 7). And nobody had more trouble than its enterprising brother-founders, David and Leo Bakalar. Transitron stockholders, including five mutual funds, filed federal suits against the Bakalars. The charge: Transitron registration statements had contained false or misleading information or significant omissions about sales, inventories, plant values and patent rights. Though they denied the charges, the Bakalars nevertheless agreed to an out-of-court settlement unique in financial history. Under terms approved last week by Boston Federal District Judge Charles E.
