Photo of (from left) John Bardeen, William Shockley and Walter Brattain, the inventors of the transistor, 1948. This is one of a series of publicity photos produced by Bell Labs around the time of the public announcement of the invention (June 30, 1948). Although Shockley was not involved in the invention, and has never been listed on patent applications, Bell Labs decided that Shockley must appear on all publicity photos along with Bardeen and Brattain.
