Synopsis: When ambitious young Chinese immigrant An Wang founded Wang Laboratories in 1951, the company operated out of a single room, had two employees, and made $15,000 its first year. By the 1970s, however, it had become a sprawling empire with revenues of $2.5 billion. But hard times were ahead for this computer giant. . . . 16 pages of photographs.
