Business Software Review, p.4, December 1987



I noted with some interest a letter from Milt Bryce of Palm Harbor, Florida, in the May 1987 issue of Business Software Review.

Mr. Bryce seems to imply that he invented the term "Information Engineering." I enclose a copy of the letterhead I used as early as 1958. In 1960 Eugene Garfield Associates, Information Engineers, changed its name to ISI. However, it is noteworthy that I had to drop the use of the designation "Information Engineers" because of a law which forbids anyone from using the term "engineering" without being a graduate of an engineering school.
