INSIDE HP: A NARRATIVE HISTORY OF HEWLETT-PACKARD FROM 1939–1990

A Curator Note,
Since the opening of this website in 2006, John Minck's HP Narrative has been my best source of inspiration for this work. John's story has given me important insight to the Hewlett-Packard company culture, and all the legendary people who built this exceptional industrial success story.
Without John's contribution, the HP Memory Project had been limited to a collector showcase, because I never worked in the culture of an HP factory, so I instead focused on the HP products story.
