This article relates highlights from the digital computer development activities at Bell Telephone Laboratories for roughly the period 1937-1958. The history begins with a researcher using relays to build a binary adder on his home kitchen table, continues with relay computers designed for military use, and culminates with computers developed after Bell Labs invented the transistor.
