From 1943-1945, I worked for the CJ Tagliabue Manufacuring Company in their plant at Myrtle and Nostrand Avenues in Brooklyn. Our EP (Electrical Pyrometers) Department designed instruments using thermocouples for measuring and controlling temperature - a big development from Tag's thermometer days.
