Preface

The AIDC 100 Archives at Stony Brook University identifies, acquires, preserves and makes available to the public, industry members, educators, and students a comprehensive and diverse library of materials that documents the AIDC (automatic identification and data capture) industry.

Introduction

The Richard B. Meyers Collection was donated to the Special Collections in 2002. The collection consists of three cubic feet of material; personal papers and writings, promotional materials, trade publications, corporate financial reports, books, videos and photographic materials collected and created by Mr. Meyers throughout his thirty-five year career in the field of automatic identification and data capture.

Mr. Meyers was a systems analyst for NCR and president of Delta Services, a broad reaching consulting firm.
