Tracy, John, 1943-
Oral history interview with John Tracy, 1987 December 17.
Tracy was one of the three founders of Orlando Research Corporation, a company that became Control Laser. Circumstances that led to the company's founding as a firm for the manufacture of argon ion lasers in 1966; some of the innovations made to improve the laser; the company, its sales, production techniques, and the origins of some of its staff. A need for capital caused the founders to sell the company to the owner of a machine company in 1969; Tracy remained until 1971. He speaks about some of the products, successful and unsuccessful, developed between 1969 and 1971, touching on the technology, the market, and the difficulties Control Laser encountered.
