Carl Zeiss Jena lenses for Contax after Thiele

Published in Spring 2006 Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: Sean McSharry

See Pages 19 – 21.

The author turns to the Thiele spreadsheets to help analyse the huge increase in manufacturing of photographic lenses during the late war years and the fluctuation of trained staff in light of the leaving of the temporary foreign workers, the loss of staff due to the staffing of the military, the loss of high level staff to Oberkochen, Russian 5 year contracts for workers to train new workers in Russia and their untimely return those 5 years later (circa 1951).

An early example of research into the life of Professor Emanuel Goldberg who led the firms of Ica and Zeiss Ikon and was the senior manager of those firms during the critical period of the merger and the integration of the predecessor firms. This was printed before  the scholarly work of Professor Michael Buckland of the University of California at Berkeley came to be published in exquisite and high level detail.
