In this oral history Lawrence J. Schoenberg describes his personal and educational history and his subsequent career in the U.S. software industry. Following service in the U.S. Signal Corps, he held various positions with IBM, Litton Industries, CSC and Automation Sciences. With others he formed a software enterprise AGS Computers Inc. in 1967, serving as CEO until 1991. In 1988 AGS Computers was partitioned into two segments—software products and microcomputers—which were later sold to NYNEX and Merisel, respectively. Toward the end of the interview, Mr. Schoenberg describes his role in ADAPSO and its successor ITAA, of which he served as Chairman of the Board in 1982, and at various times president of the Software Products, Professional Services, and Systems Integration Divisions. He was very active in working with the Financial Ac-counting Standards Board (FASB) and the American Institute of Certified Public Ac-countants (AICPA) on behalf of ADAPSO. This oral history was sponsored by the Software History Center in conjunction with the Center's ADAPSO reunion (3 May 2002).
