Pioneers of the Medical Device Industry in Minnesota Oral History Project
Introduction
Description Interviews document the development of the medical device industry in Minnesota through the people who generated the ideas, designed the products, and created the marketing organizations that form the industry. The project attempts to capture the history of the interpersonal relationships and individual, intellectual efforts that have framed the development of the medical technology industry in Minnesota and the nation. A major focus of this project is the founding and growth of the major companies that are important to this history. The project includes interviews with a group of key players in the industry's history to date. They were selected in consultation with advisors whose different perspectives on the evolution of medical technology, medical history, and business and organizational history and structure have ensured interviews with both depth and scope. Each interview explores the individual narrator's role in the industry and his or her perspective on its growth and development.
