The article Renato refers to here (previous post) is VERY intriguing! The rewarding career Happy Holden had with HP (in its heyday) is more than fascinating.
I my mind, I imagine you, being the curator of this wonderful museum, might have a greater impact (more so than the rest of us here) in asking HH if would be interested in having some of his treasures (in his calculator box) being put on display here.. especially that HP-02 LCD watch? He also mentioned lots of calculator parts that never made it to market. I would hope such a request would honor him.
I haven't tried contacting him. I am hoping some interest could be stirred up here first, so Happy would know there are a bunch of folks that are envious and appreciative of his role in helping to produce the calculators we discuss here everyday, and that we would love to see (and hear even more details about) the fruits of his labor.
If this sounds feasible, Dave, I for one, would be most appreciative to hear your thoughts on this. If there is anything I can do to help, just say the word.
