General Dynamics Corporation traces its origins to John Philip Holland's Holland Torpedo Boat Company. In 1899, Isaac Rice bought the company from Holland and renamed it Electric Boat Company on February 7, 1899.
Since then, the company was named Submarine Boat Corporation, acquired Canadair, sold that back
to the Canadian government, but was reorganized as General Dynamics in 1952. Subsequently it merged with Material Service Corporation, acquired Chrysler Defense from Chrysler, sold its Data Systems Division, sold Cessna, sold the Space division and the remaining Convair Aircraft Structure unit, and acquired many other companies.
