I am an 80 year old retired designer and developer of computers and computer systems. I started in the field when when internal memories were on drums, moved to magnetic cores and eventually to chips. I'm a co-holder of patents on a version of cache memories and was responsible for the development of a hand held computer with a touch screen more than 30 years ago. I was also on the committee that developed the ASCII code. Since retiring I've had an historical novel puplished about art stolen from the Jews during the WWII, and am now busilly engaged in tutoring 6th grade math students and being president of a community concert organization. I'm active in the local chapter of the World Affairs Council and occasionally give talks there on world events. I've been actively involved in politics all my life and at one time was president of the local Democratic Club. I've been married for 56 years and have 3 children, all boys, and 3 grandchildren, a boy and 2 girls. I'm pationate about furthering peace and justice in the world.
