Fairchild Camera and Instrument
Fairchild Camera and Instrument was a company founded by Sherman Fairchild . It was based on the East Coast of the United States, and provided research and development for flash photography equipment.
In 1957, the company was approached by members of the Traitorous Eight to rescue the group from the mad tyranny of William Shockley. Sherman Fairchild agreed to provide the venture capital for Fairchild Semiconductor, from which would spawn dozens of semiconductors and Silicon Valley.
