Perhaps someone can help me locate a very humorous  short
essay from Dick Haight of PWB (I believe Dick was John Mashey's
boss at the time) work in Piscataway.  I had a paper copy that Dick
gave me that has long since disappeared in many office moves over
almost 50 years.

I contacted Dick. No luck.

*Sorry. Don’t have it myself. Lost a lot of stuff when I left BTL in 1989.
I’d like a dump of my home directory from that time.*
