In the meantime I found some more information about Geoffrey W.A.
Dummer's (and not Drummer) 1952 paper mentioning integrated circuits in
Wolff (1978)[1]: "It came in the closing paragraphs of an invited paper
on radar component reliability presenten at the annual electronic
components sumposium in Washington, D.C." (p. 45)

Does anyone know of the proceedings of this conference?

pair of U.S innovators brought into reality a concept that was on many
minds. IEEE Spectrum, August: 45-53.
