Thanks for the Memories
Chuck, Fran and Jim, I want you to know what a terrific experience
it was seeing you guys again and being reminded what wonderful gentlemen
you have always been and what great examples you were for young Engineers
like myself on the 1401. With your unique talents and leadership, you made
it all happen and played the major role in making what was an interesting
experience 50 years ago into an important part of computer history!
Thanks for guiding me through that experience then and again
reminding me what a wonderful experience it was overall. As I said in
ending my poem Ode to the IBM 1401, " The accomplishments of that 1401
team are beyond measure, but the teamwork and the friendships nourished
then and there are an incomparable treasure"!
You have my thanks, friendship and enduring gratitude for your
leadership and guidance to make that all happen along with my other
lifelong friends who participated!
Many of these friends are on the copy list but unfortunately many are no
longer with us to celebrate our joint accomplishments. I salute them along
with you and treasure their friendships and memory as I do yours!
P.S.- Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
