Russell and Sigurd Varian

Stanford Industrial Park's first tenants

Brothers Russell H. and Sigurd F. Varian found Varian Associates in San Carlos, California, along with William Webster Hansen and Edward Ginzton, and begin conducting research on vacuum tubes and electronic circuitry. The firm’s first product is the klystron, an electronic tube capable of generating electromagnetic waves at microwave frequencies. In 1953, the company relocates to Palo Alto to become the first tenant of the new Stanford Industrial Park.
