Over the years, the eQuorian team has produced multiple newsletters.  This started back in 1984.  As President of the San Diego Computer Society, Bob was responsible for the production and publication of their monthly newsletter, Personal Systems.

Recently, we scanned in six of the 48 pages published in the November 1984 issue of the newsletter.  They are included in this article.

The front page of that edition included a picture that was done by Bob’s son James, who was nine years old at the time. James used a Commodore 64 computer. It included the Flexidraw Lightpen system manufactured by Inkwell Systems, a small company in San Diego.  The inside and outside pages of the front and back cover are included for context.  The “President’s File” is also included to give you a feeling for what was happening in the organization at that time.

All phone numbers were deleted, as we don’t suspect a thirty year old phone number would be of much value to anyone.  Bob commented that reading the list of volunteers and leaders on the inside back cover stirred up a lot of dormant memories.

We hope you enjoy this peek into another era. One of the key articles, that we did not scan in, was a listing “Stolen KayPro Computer serial numbers!”.  It was definitely a smaller computer world at that time. 🙂
