System I was looking over the Bell System Memorial site and came to the "Life in the Bell " page:

https://www.porticus.org/bell/lifebellsystem.htm

Interesting reading about some of the skeletons inside of Ma Bell's closet. I got a chuckle out of the Princess Phone flap. Field tests pointed to a problem, Bell Labs ignores the findings and orders Western Electric to begin production anyhow. End result? Over a million dollars had to be spent to retrofit the telephones.

What were they thinking???? :rolleyes:

OUCH! smile John C.


When I was young, I was Liberal. As I aged and wised up, I became Conservative. Now that I'm old, I have settled on Curmudgeon.
