EE Times: California Fires Destroy HP Archive Documents

Post by mediatechnology » Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:27 pm

The California Wine Country fires that have destroyed many homes and taken lives have left their mark on the test industry and electrical engineering, having destroyed many of Bill Hewlett's and Dave Packard's documents. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported the loss on October 30. Keysight Technologies, the heir to Bill and Dave's test-and-measurement legacy and keeper of the HP archives, confirmed the loss in an e-mail to EE Times.
