About 4,000 of these scientists and engineers were assigned to a newly created Bell Telephone Laboratories, Inc. in 1925. In 1934, AT&T's Development and Research Department, which had been devoted to bridging the gap between laboratory research and the operations of communication systems, was integrated into Bell Laboratories. In 1984, as a consequence of a divestiture agreement with the U.S. Government, AT&T Corporation divested itself of its local exchange companies. As part of the divestiture agreement, AT&T Technologies assumed the business of Western Electric and Bell Laboratories) {}
