Scope and Content

​The collection consists of a bound copy of the report generated by the Mayor's Task Force on High Technology.

The City of Dallas has long been a center for technological advancement.  Beginning in 1958 with the invention of the integrated circuit by Texas Instruments engineer Jack Kilby, Dallas has been at the forefront of high tech innovation.  (Kilby was awarded a Nobel Prize in 2000 for this achievement.)  The region's technology sector is anchored by companies such as Texas Instruments and AT&T.

The Mayor's Task Force on High Technology was formed in March 1984 by Mayor A. Starke Taylor.  The task force was developed to investigate the health of high technology in the Metroplex and to recommend how to further promote the growth of the industry.  To accomplish this goal, the task force consulted with business, academic, and governmental leaders to develop recommendations on how best to enhance the growth of the high tech industry in the Metroplex.
