Sadly I never heard of him. Apparently he did his developing not far from me in Valley Forge.

Thank you Chuck for having the vision so PCs would be available to the common man/woman.

Never heard of this guy until now. Thanks for a very interesting link to his story.

 

Noteworthy that he was so drawn to California. An east coast native would

logically return east later in life. I note with interest he didn't stay in PA,

however, and he died in Santa Cruz.
