TitleFogelsong patent notebook (#1004)
Biographical NotesRobert (Bob) L. Foglesong joined Fairchild circa 1963. He worked on the design of transistor and IC-based logic circuits. R & D organization charts note that he was Section Head of Circuits and Development Technology reporting to R. Seeds, Manager of Digital Integrated Electronics Department, in 1967 and in the same group renamed as Bipolar Technology in 1968. In this role he supervised several engineers who went on to successful careers at Fairchild and Intel including, L. Vadasz, D. Frohman, and D. Peltzer.
ExtentApproximately 34 dated entries over 93 pages. Many are undated.
