From its very beginning, NCR had a major impact on the people and communities in which it operated, especially its headquarters city of Dayton. The company was praised, condemned, and above all, observed intently as it pioneered in technology, labor relations, and corporate relations with the outside community. This section of the web site assembles a variety of statements by and about NCR people during the early years (1884-1922) of its history. Joseph Sharts was a Dayton Socialist Party leader who thought NCR had too much influence in local politics. Business journalist Edwin Wildman wrote a glowing account of Patterson during a time of unrest following World War I. A 1907 article by Patterson in the company magazine gives his view of Dayton at the time.
