Binghamton Rotary Gets a Lesson in the Early Days of IBM
8/14/2012 (Updated 10:59:15 PM)Many of us are familiar with IBM's history here in the southern tier, but how much do you know about big blue's beginnings?
Janna Rudler turned back the clock at the Binghamton Rotary Tuesday.
She took the audience back to early years of IBN, sharing the story of how it all started with the Bundy Manufacturing Company.
Rudler is from the Bundy Museum, which is dedicated to the Bundy brothers.
The brothers moved their recording clock company from Binghamton to Endicott, where it eventually became IBM.
"The humble beginnings of great industry in Binghamton. This was called the "Valley of Opportunity" for a reason. And I believe it still is the valley of opportunity, but we have to tap into that inspiration to develop and change with the times," said Janna Rudler the Director of Development at Bundy Museum of History and Art.
Want to take a trip back to the founding of IBM you can visit the Bundy Museum of History and Art at 129 Main Street Binghamton or visit the website www.bundymuseum.org.
