It was a fun day sharing teaching stories and information about our Museum and Curtis Anderson's "Telephone Museum" in Richmond Virginia.  Our mutual interest began about 35 years ago when  Curtis attended a "Microcomputer Interfacing" Workshop that my colleagues and I were teaching at Virginia Tech. Curtis went on to develop a number of teaching programs in the Richmond VA area for many years after his start with our workshop. He tells about his visit and his use of our early training material for "Microcomputer Instrumentation.

Curtis and I spent the day talking about our early days of teaching during the start of the Microcomputer Revolution. We had many of the same experiences and it was a real joy to look at the vintage computers in our museum and reminisce about times past.  Looking back it was really great fun to  have been teaching all during the start of the Microcomputer Revolution at Virginia Tech and in many other countries.
