Bell Labs WWW site, Aug. 6, 2015 under History, History of Bell Labs (Bell Labs has its roots in the consolidation of several engineering departments within the American Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T) Company and the Western Electric company, the manufacturing organization for the Bell System. About 4,000 of these scientists and engineers were assigned to a newly created Bell Telephone Laboratories, Inc. in 1925. In 1934, AT&T's Development and Research Department, which had been devoted to bridging the gap between laboratory research and the operations of communication systems, was integrated into Bell Laboratories. In 1984, as a consequence of a divestiture agreement with the U.S. Government, AT&T Corporation divested itself of its local exchange companies. As part of the divestiture agreement, AT&T Technologies assumed the business of Western Electric and Bell Laboratories)
