Overview of M. Ibuka Memorial Auditorium and International Conference Center, Waseda University
Masaru Ibuka Memorial Auditorium and International Conference Center was built in Waseda University in 1992. The building consists of one auditorium and three presentation rooms.
The M. Ibuka Memorial Auditorium was built to the memory of Masaru Ibuka, co-founder of Sony Corporation. Masaru Ibuka graduated in 1933 from Waseda University. After graduating, he went to work at Photo-Chemical Laboratory, a company which processed movie film. In 1945, he left the company and founded a radio repair shop in Tokyo.
In 1946 Ibuka and Akio Morita co-founded Sony Corporation, originally named Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation (prior to 1958). Ibuka was instrumental in securing the licensing of transistor technology to Sony from Bell Labs in the 1950s, thus making Sony one of the first companies to apply transistor technology to non-military uses. Ibuka served as president of Sony from 1950 to 1971, and then served as chairman of Sony between 1971 and 1976.
