The first superconducting proton synchrotron became operational in 1983. Since then, extensive fixed target and colliding beam facilities have been added to create the TEVATRON. Here we describe the fixed target physics program, largely from the major runs of 800 GeV in 1985 and 1987. The first collider run of \(\bar pp \) at 1.8 TeV took place from January–May 1987. The operation and physics results of the collider will also be presented. Finally, an outline of future improvements will be given.
