The Employee's Badge

The problems and bad luck suffered by Eckert and Mauchly early in their business careers are well documented.  After American Totalizer's Harry Straus who was backing the company died they sold their business to Remington Rand.  John Mauchly went off at that time to start his own consulting business and Pres stayed on as the head of engineering.
